Ducks send Holland to AHL Norfolk

Oct 7, 2013, 9:54 PM EDT

The Anaheim Ducks sent center Peter Holland to the Norfolk Admirals in the American Hockey League on Monday.

Holland is the Ducks’ first-round pick, 15th overall, from the 2009 NHL Entry Draft but had not played in the Anaheim’s first three games of this season.

The 22-year-old Holland, from Toronto, has appeared in 25 regular season games for the Ducks since November of 2011, scoring four goals and six points.

Of the 48 regular season games in the lockout-shortened 2013 campaign, Holland played in 21 of those.

    Another thing I’ve always loved about hockey, a first-round pick from 5 drafts ago is only 22.

    Norfolk is the best the Ducks can do for an AHL affiliate? That’s a hell of a haul to recall/send down prospects.

      No4folk has been known to produce some pretty good hockey players through the years. Once the season starts its not like the teams are traveling together anyways. Its not uncommon for teams to have affiliates across the continent. The Canucks bought the Peoria Rivermen and moved the team to Utica.

        yeah, most notably, a lot of the 2010 cup-winning Hawks. Keith, Seabrook, Byfuglien…. and both goalies from that series, Leighton and Crawford. I only got into the Ads when i moved down here 3 years ago, wish I had seen those guys play here.

      It must be ok for them, that team was the Syracuse Crunch a couple years ago. They swapped affiliates with the bolts to lighten their AHL team’s travel load. So even through the swap, they stayed on the east coast. I guess until the AHL realigns, they’re stuck with that.

    Holland will be traded. He didn’t show anything in preseason. Looked ok last year but has regressed this year . . .
