The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled center Sam Carrick from the San Diego Gulls, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).
Carrick, 25 (2/4/92), has earned 3-2=5 points with 12 penalty minutes (PIM) in eight AHL Calder Cup Playoff games with San Diego. Carrick currently co-leads the Gulls in goals and ranks tied for third in points. Acquired from Chicago with Spencer Abbott in exchange for Kenton Helgesen and a seventh-round selection in the 2019 NHL Draft on Mar. 1, 2017, Carrick recorded 14-25=39 points with 105 PIM in 72 games between San Diego and Rockford during the 2016-17 regular season.
Selected by Toronto in the fifth round (144th overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Carrick has collected 1-1=2 points with 13 PIM in 19 career NHL games with the Maple Leafs. The 6-0, 207-pound forward has yet to make his Stanley Cup Playoffs debut.
