Mueller was placed on Monday's waiver wire by the Maple Leafs. Mueller hasn't appeared in an NHL contest since the 2014-15 season, when he was with the Rangers. Since then, the winger has excelled in the minors, as he has notched 124 points in 131 games over the last two years. If the 31-year-old goes unclaimed off waivers, he will join AHL Toronto for the time being, but don't be surprised to see him in a Maple Leafs sweater at some point this season.
Mueller has signed a two-way contract with the Maple Leafs. Mueller is a 31-year-old, minor-league journeyman who scored at a point-per-game pace (67 in 68 games) for the AHL affiliate of the Coyotes, the Tucson Roadrunners, in 2016-17. Mueller also won the Calder Cup in 2014 as a member of the Texas Stars.
The Ducks have reassigned Mueller to AHL San Diego. Mueller wasn't able to draw into the Ducks' lineup after his last call-up Tuesday. However, it's likely that he will pick up meaningful ice time with the Gulls -- he has four goals, 10 assists and 22 PIM with the minor-league affiliate in 2015-16.
The Ducks have recalled Mueller from AHL San Diego. Mueller is a gritty depth forward for the Ducks. He has produced three goals and seven assists in 53 career games at the NHL level.
Chris Mueller signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ducks on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.
