Anaheim reassigned Sherwood to AHL San Diego on Tuesday, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
The 24-year-old American will now shift his focus to helping San Diego secure a spot in the Calder Cup playoffs.
Sherwood scored a goal and added an assist in Tuesday's 5-4 win over the Canucks.
It's the first two-point outing of the rookie winger's career. Sherwood is up to six goals and six helpers in 48 games this season, skating with the Ducks for just his second game since a recall Saturday. Sherwood added three shots and a plus-3 rating in the contest.
The Ducks recalled Sherwood from AHL San Diego on Saturday.
Sherwood played 46 of the first 47 games of the season with the Ducks, but he has spent 24 games in the minors since Jan. 15. The 23-year-old will get another chance with the big club now, although it's unclear if he'll play Saturday versus the Kings.
Anaheim assigned Sherwood to AHL San Diego on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of The Athletic reports.
Sherwood has only potted one goal while posting a minus-3 rating during the Ducks' current 12-game losing streak, so he was an obvious candidate for demotion now that Anaheim has finally decided to shake up its roster. The 23-year-old forward could be back with the big club later this season, but he's only notched 10 points in 46 NHL appearances this campaign, so there's no need for fantasy owners to keep tabs on his status.
Sherwood recorded an assist, two penalty minutes and two shots during Sunday's 6-5 win over the Capitals.
The helper brings Sherwood to two goals and six points in 28 games in his rookie season. Logging 12:01 per game, his spot in the lineup is in jeopardy once Patrick Eaves (back) is ready to return.

Anaheim is dealing with a number of injuries up front, so Sherwood will likely slot into the lineup immediately Thursday against New York. The 23-year-old forward has totaled two goals and four points in 12 appearances with the big club this campaign.
Sherwood was assigned to AHL San Diego on Tuesday.
Sherwood has played in 12 games for the Ducks this season, recording two goals, two assists and a plus-5 rating. The Ducks needed to make room for defenseman Marcus Pettersson in the lineup since Josh Manson (upper body) can't go, and Sherwood was the collateral damage.
Sherwood tallied a goal on two shots in a 4-2 loss to the Sabres on Sunday.
Due to injuries, a lot of young Ducks have gotten their first taste of NHL action this season, and you can count Sherwood among them. He's gotten off to a surprisingly good start, as he's notched four points in nine games. That being said, the 23-year-old has only put 12 shots on net, and he's only averaged 13:27 per game in ice time.
Sherwood will be on the Opening Night roster for Anaheim, Elliott Teaford of The Orange County Register reports.
The Ducks appreciate how Sherwood plays with an edge and has a quick motor. It's unlikely that he would have won the job if there weren't so many established forwards currently injured -- including Corey Perry (knee) -- but now the Miami University (Ohio) standout will have a chance to prove that he belongs at the top level. He produced 30 points (nine goals, 21 assists) in 36 games for the RedHawks in 2017-18.
