Ducks send left-winger Green, centre Macenauer to American Hockey League

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have assigned left-winger Josh Green and centre Maxime Macenauer to their AHL affiliate in Syracuse.

The Ducks' moves Monday indicate 18-year-old defenceman Cam Fowler likely has made the opening-night roster. Fowler was the 12th overall pick in last June's draft, but has impressed coach Randy Carlyle with his mature play.

Fowler grew up in the suburbs of Detroit, where Anaheim opens the season Friday. The Ducks have nine games to decide whether to keep Fowler for the season or return him to his junior team.

The Ducks have 26 players on their roster, but three are injured, including defenceman Toni Lydman and right wing Joffrey Lupul. Anaheim has kept seven healthy defencemen, including Fowler and 20-year-old Luca Sbisa.
