Guenin signed a one-year, two-way contract to be reunited with the Ducks on Saturday, Sportsnet reports. According to NHL.com, this is the only signing the Ducks have made since free agency began Friday at noon, and it involves a fringe defenseman returning to Anaheim after making 15 appearances with the club in 2011-12.
Guenin was reassigned to AHL San Antonio on Thursday. Guenin has eight years of service time in the NHL but hasn't done much of anything with it from an offensive standpoint, collecting 28 points in 205 career games. Of course, he's off the map in the fantasy realm but he does give teams size on the ice at 6-foot-3 and 207 pounds.
Guenin was placed on waivers by the Avalanche on Wednesday, Bob McKenzie of TSN reports. Guenin will look to restart his 2015-16 campaign elsewhere, failing to record a single point in 29 outings. Given his lack of offensive production, it is possible the 33-year-old will clear waivers, likely reporting to AHL San Antonio.
Guenin (head) will return to the lineup Thursday against the Blackhawks, Marc Moser of Altitude TV reports. Guenin hasn't played since Dec. 21 because of the head injury, but it's quite possible he's served as a healthy scratch of late. He was a late addition to Thursday's lineup due to Tyson Barrie being scratched with an illness, so it appears whatever ailed him is now behind him.
Guenin is dealing with a possible concussion and has been ruled out for at least one week. Guenin suffered the head injury during Monday's outing against the Maple Leafs. Colorado's next game isn't until Sunday against the Coyotes, so it's possible he won't actually miss any game time.
