Ducks recall forward Maroon from AHL affiliate to replace injured Jason Blake

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have recalled left-winger Patrick Maroon from their AHL affiliate in Syracuse.

The Ducks made the move before Sunday's game against St. Louis to replace veteran left-winger Jason Blake, who will be out three months with tendon damage in his left forearm.

Maroon scored 48 points in 57 games for Syracuse last season. The six-foot-four power forward had five points in his first two games with the Crunch this season.

The 23-year-old Maroon has never played in the NHL, but scored a preseason goal for the Ducks last month.

Anaheim acquired Maroon from Philadelphia last November, several weeks after the Flyers dismissed him from their organization. Maroon reportedly clashed with Philadelphia's AHL coaches and management.
