De Leo signed a one-year, two-way contract with Anaheim on Friday, CapFriendly reports.
De Leo played in just one NHL game last year, in which he recorded four shots, one hit and a minus-1 rating while logging 12:32 of ice time. While in the minors, the center notched 20 goals and 35 helpers in 66 appearances. With the Ducks looking to retool their lineup, De Leo could earn a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night versus Arizona on Oct. 3.
De Leo filed for salary arbitration Friday.
De Leo appeared in 66 games in the minors last season, racking up 20 goals and 35 assists. The California native was extended a qualifying offer by Anaheim on June 26, but it appears he would like a different offer from the club. If both parties agree to a new salary, which is highly likely, De Leo could see an increased role with the parent club in 2019-20.
De Leo was given a qualifying offer by the Ducks on Tuesday.
De Leo was highly impressive in the minors last season, racking up 20 goals and 55 points in 66 games, and should be in prime position to earn a regular role with the big club this campaign.
Anaheim reassigned De Leo to AHL San Diego on Tuesday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
The Ducks aren't competing for a spot in the playoffs, so there's no reason for them to keep youngsters like De Leo around for the final two games of the season. The 2014 fourth-round pick will return to a prominent role with San Diego, where he's racked up 51 points in 61 games this campaign.
De Leo has been recalled by Anaheim ahead of Saturday's matchup with Edmonton, Elliott Teaford of the OC Register reports.
The Ducks are out of playoff contention and likely want to get a close-up look at some of their more interesting prospects down the stretch. De Leo -- a fourth-round pick in 2014 -- fits that description.
De Leo is no longer on Anaheim's active roster, per the NHL's official media site, which implies that he's been sent down to AHL San Diego.
There won't be any fantasy owners sweating out the status of De Leo, as he's an organizational depth option who didn't see any NHL action upon his latest call-up.
De Leo was called up from AHL San Diego on Tuesday.
De Leo has yet to make his Ducks debut since he was acquired in a trade with the Jets in late June. However, captain Ryan Getzlaf (upper body) missed the latest contest, so De Leo -- Winnipeg's 2014 fourth-round (99th overall) draft pick -- was summoned from the minors as a reinforcement in case the star center can't give it a go against host Los Angeles on Tuesday evening.
De Leo was sent back down to AHL San Diego on Thursday.
De Leo was called up prior to Wednesday's game, did not play, and is headed right back down to the minors. The 22-year-old is in his first year with the Anaheim organization, as he previously had plied his trade with the Winnipeg Jets, primarily for AHL Manitoba.
The Ducks recalled De Leo from AHL San Diego on Tuesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
The Ducks are pretty banged up at forward, so De Leo will be tasked with providing the team with added depth up front for the foreseeable future. The 2014 fourth-round pick has racked up one goal and four points in three AHL contests this campaign.
De Leo signed a one-year contract with the Ducks on Friday, CapFriendly reports. The two-way deal is valued at $650,000 (NHL) and $70,000 (AHL) with $80,000 in guaranteed salary.
The Ducks finally settled on De Leo's contract after acquiring him from the Jets for Nic Kerdiles on June 30. Born in La Mirada, California, the 22-year-old could end up shuffling between the organization's ranks a fair amount this coming season. He performed reasonably well for AHL Manitoba last year, adding 12 goals, 23 assists and a plus-7 rating over 69 games.
The Jets traded De Leo to the Ducks in exchange for forward Nic Kerdiles on Saturday.
De Leo received a qualifying offer from Winnipeg as a pending restricted free agent, but now the Ducks will look to sign the center to his first non-entry-level deal ahead of the 2018-19 campaign. The 22-year-old compiled 12 goals, 23 assists, and 31 PIM over 69 games with AHL Manitoba last season. Time will tell if De Leo ultimately lives up to his potential as a fourth-round (99th overall) draft pick from 2014.
De Leo was given a qualifying offer by the Jets on Monday.
De Leo hasn't cracked Winnipeg's lineup in either of the previous two seasons, but has posted back-to-back 30-plus point campaigns with AHL Manitoba. The 22-year-old -- who was taken with the 99th overall pick in the 2014 NHL Draft -- figures to split time between the NHL and AHL this upcoming year and will no doubt be hoping to see some action with the Jets.
De Leo recorded 14 goals and 18 helpers with AHL Manitoba this past season.
De Leo continues to work his way toward a more significant role within the Jets organization after a second straight season with 30-plus points in the minors. The center didn't earn a call-up this past year, but was fourth on the Moose in points and should at least be on the radar of Winnipeg coach Paul Maurice. A product of the WHL, the 21-year-old may still need a year or two to further develop his game before he can secure a spot on the 23-man roster.
De Leo was sent back down to the minors Friday.
This should be considered less of a demotion than De Leo simply opening a roster spot for prospect Kyle Connor, who was activated from IR and is on the verge of returning from an upper-body injury.
De Leo was recalled by Winnipeg on Monday.
When Kyle Connor was sent to the IR, De Leo was the replacement the Jets chose. The 21-year-old has seven points in 12 games with AHL Manitoba this year, so if he finds a similar groove, he could be a decent NHL scorer in his time with the big club.
De Leo was recalled on emergency conditions Wednesday by the Jets.
De Leo joined the Jets for two games earlier in the season, but just 9:25 of average ice time kept any upside limited. That will likely be the case again, and the emergency conditions likely indicate his stay won't last long.
De Leo was reassigned to AHL Manitoba on Thursday.
De Leo did his part for the Jets over the last couple games, but the return of Joel Armia on Thursday ended the emergency conditions. As a result, he will return to AHL Manitoba, but his placement in the organization shouldn't have much bearing on fantasy leagues.
De Leo was recalled from AHL Manitoba on Sunday on emergency conditions.
A fourth-round pick in 2014, De Leo has led the team's AHL affiliate in scoring with 33 points (16 goals) this season. If he draws into the lineup, it would be his NHL debut, but the 20-year-old is unlikely to see enough playing time to be worthy of rostering in season-long fantasy leagues, and his stay with the club shouldn't be a long one.
