Lundestrom was recalled from his loan spell with Timra IK (Sweden) on Monday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports. Lundestrom racked up five goals and six helpers in 12 appearances for Timra. There wasn't any indication of an injury for the 21-year-old winger, so it could simply be the Ducks are preparing to open up their facility as part of the expanded return to play for non-playoff teams. The Swede saw action in a mere 15 contests for Anaheim last year but could be in the mix for an increased role in 2020-21, barring any setbacks during training camp.
Lundestrom was loaned to Timra IK in Sweden on Monday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. This move is simply to get the 20-year-old forward on the ice while North American hockey is on hiatus, as Lundestrom does have an opt-out clause with Timra IK. Over the last two seasons, he's tallied six assists in 30 NHL appearances.
The Ducks recalled Lundestrom from AHL San Diego on Sunday. Lundestrom was promoted ahead of Sunday's contest against Minnesota but did not dress. The 20-year-old forward has four assists in 15 NHL contests this season.
Lundestrom was demoted to the minors Thursday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports. Lundestrom's return to the minors likely clears the way for Derek Grant (shoulder) and/or Jakob Silfverberg (upper body) to slot back into the lineup against the Predators on Thursday, though coach Dallas Eakins didn't confirm whether either player was ready. In 15 NHL games, the 19-year-old Lundestrom notched four helpers, 10 shots and eight blocks while averaging 13:55 of ice time. The winger will likely spend the bulk of the remaining 2019-20 campaign in the minors but should get an extended look for the 23-man roster heading into next season.
Lundestrom notched an assist in Friday's 4-3 win over the Golden Knights. Lundestrom's helper came on a Maxime Comtois goal in the second period. Both of Lundestrom's assists this season have come in four games he's appeared in since being recalled from AHL San Diego. It took him 15 games to pick up two helpers last year. The 20-year-old shouldn't be relied on in fantasy just yet, but owners in dynasty formats may want to stash the first-round pick from 2018.
