Shea Theodore is back on his way to the American Hockey League.
The Anaheim Ducks reportedly made the move Sunday, sending the 21-year-old defenseman and former first-round pick to San Diego, per Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register.
So far this season, Theodore has been up and down between the minors and the big club, and certainly the fact both teams are located in the same state makes it more convenient.
The Ducks have confirmed the move.
Recalled to the Ducks in mid-November, Theodore has played in 21 games this season for Anaheim.
He had one goal and six points in that time, but his ice time had dipped below 15 minutes per game in three of his last four starts, including 13:06 Friday against the Canucks.
The Ducks begin a five-game home stand today, as they face the Philadelphia Flyers.
