The Anaheim Ducks, faced with an injury to Nick Bonino, recalled David Steckel from the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League, the NHL club announced Saturday.

In 36 games with the Admirals, the 31-year-old Steckel has five goals and 15 points. He’s appeared in four games for the Ducks this season, without registering a point.

His recall comes with news that Bonino, having a breakout year with Anaheim, has been placed on injured reserve. He’ll miss at least the next three games prior to the Olympic break.

Bonino suffered an upper-body injury Thursday against the Philadelphia Flyers.

The Ducks, currently atop the Western Conference standings with 85 points, host the Dallas Stars on Saturday.

    ^^^both of these guys are pathetic… especially the one that compares every player to the best player in the league.

      The first so called “fan” of the Pens just spews nonsensical garbage.
      And the second is a Buffalo fan,so that is a joke in itself.
