The Ducks have recalled defenseman Alex Grant from the Norfolk Admirals, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL).

Grant, 24 (1/20/89), scored 6-6=12 points with a +2 rating and 10 penalty minutes (PIM) in 19 games for Norfolk this season. At the time of his recall, Grant ranked tied for third among AHL defensemen in goals and tied for 12th in scoring. He also led the Admirals in scoring and shots on goal (53), co-led in goals and ranked second in assists and power-play goals (4). The 6-4, 205-pound blueliner became the second defenseman in franchise history (Duncan Keith) to record a hat trick as part of a four-point night (3-1=4) in a 5-0 victory on Oct. 11 vs. Binghamton.

Acquired from Pittsburgh in exchange for left wing Harry Zolnierczyk on June 24, 2013, Grant has scored 23-51=74 points with a +10 rating and 184 PIM in 144 career AHL games with Norfolk and Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. He ranked third among AHL rookies and tied for fourth among league defensemen in power-play points (7-20=27) in 2011-12, while setting career highs in goals (10), assists (27), points (37) and appearances (61). Grant has also appeared in 27 career Calder Cup Playoff games, earning 4-7=11 points with 40 PIM and helped lead Wilkes-Barre/Scranton to the 2013 AHL Eastern Conference Final. Grant was selected by the Pittsburgh Penguins in the fourth round (118th overall) of the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.
