Josh_240 The Ducks have recalled left wing Josh Green from the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheim's primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League.

With left wing Matt Belesky out with a concussion, the Ducks needed some offensive help. Green, 32, appeared in seven games for Syracuse this season and had one goal and three points.

If nothing else, Green has experience. In 322 career NHL games, Green has 35 goals and 74 points.

Signed to a one-year contract by the Ducks in July, he was originally selected by the Kings in the second round (30th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft. He has played for the Kings (1998-99), the Islanders (1999-00), the Oilers (2001-03), the Rangers (2002-03), the Capitals (2002-04), the Flames (2003-04), the Canucks (2005-07) and the Ducks (2009).
