Roundup: Ducks recall Fasth, Kings waive Stewart

Fasth

Some minor transactions to pass along…

Ducks bring up Fasth

Anaheim has recalled goalie Viktor Fasth from AHL Norfolk, according to NHL.com.

In May, Fasth signed with Anaheim on a one-year deal to be Jonas Hiller‘s backup, but was sent to Norfolk so he could get some game action prior to joining the club.

The 29-year-old is an interesting story, something of a late bloomer.

He spent the majority of his career playing in Sweden’s lower-tier leagues before bursting onto the scene with AIK in 2010-11. Since then, he’s gone on to win back-to-back Honken Trophies, awarded annually to the top goalie in Sweden (the only other multiple winners are New York’s Henrik Lundqvist and former Lightning goalie Johan Holmqvist.)

In a related move, Anaheim sent down goalie Frederik Andersen to the Admirals.

Canucks waive Vandermeer

Vancouver has placed defenseman Jim Vandermeer on waivers, according to TSN.

The 32-year-old signed a one-year, two-way deal with the Canucks during training camp, shortly after the club inked another veteran defenseman — Cam Barker.

Vandermeer was a healthy scratch for both of Vancouver’s losses on the weekend and had been practicing as both a defenseman and forward at camp.

If he’s not claimed, he’ll probably be off to AHL Chicago.

Kings waive Stewart

Los Angeles has put Anthony Stewart on waivers, according to TSN’s Bob McKenzie.

Stewart, 28, was acquired by Los Angeles from Carolina at the beginning of training camp, in exchange for enforcer Kevin Westgarth.

He didn’t dress for the Kings’ season-opening loss against Chicago, and is presumably on waivers to facilitate the return of Anze Kopitar, who missed the opener with a knee injury.

If Stewart clears, he’ll likely be headed to AHL Manchester.
