The Ducks have recalled goaltender Frederik Andersen and defenseman Nolan Yonkman from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

In addition, the Ducks have placed defenseman Luca Sbisa and goaltender Viktor Fasth on injured reserve. Sbisa suffered a tendon tear in his right hand last night vs. Tampa Bay and will have surgery Monday. He is out 6-8 weeks. Fasth is suffering from muscle inflammation (lower body) and is out 3-4 weeks.

Andersen, 24 (10/2/89), has posted a 6-1-0 record with a 1.66 goals-against average (GAA) and .943 save percentage (SV%) in seven games with Anaheim this season. Andersen returns to the NHL currently ranked second among league goaltenders in SV% and fourth in GAA. Among rookie netminders, he ranks first in wins, GAA, SV%, appearances and starts. Andersen won his first six NHL games from Oct. 20-Nov. 10, marking the first time since December 1993 that a goaltender won his first six career contests (last: Toronto’s Damian Rhodes from Mar. 22, 1991-Dec. 2, 1993).

Selected by Anaheim in the third round (87th overall) of the 2012 NHL Entry Draft, Andersen went 2-0-0 with a 0.96 GAA and .971 SV% in two games with Norfolk this season. The Herning, Denmark native has appeared in 49 career AHL games with Norfolk, going 26-18-1 with five shutouts, a 2.14 GAA and .931 SV%.

Yonkman, 32 (4/1/81), has collected 1-8=9 points with a +8 rating and 140 penalty minutes (PIM) in 74 career NHL games. Yonkman made his NHL debut with Washington in 2001-02 and set career highs in points (7), assists (7) and games played (38) with the Capitals in 2005-06. A native of Punnichy, Saskatchewan, Yonkman appeared in seven games for Florida last season, going scoreless with 11 PIM.

Signed by Anaheim as a free agent on July 9, 2013, Yonkman collected 0-3=3 points with a +1 rating and 31 PIM in 18 games with Norfolk this season. At the time of his recall, Yonkman co-led the Admirals in appearances and ranked third in PIM.
