FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) - After being called up to the NHL's Anaheim Ducks earlier this week goaltender Jeff Deslauriers is heading back to the Summit City.
On Friday Deslauriers was assigned to the Komets by Anaheim. The Komets then put Marco Cousineau on reserve.
Deslauriers, who was originally assigned to Fort Wayne on Feb. 19, has appeared in eight contests for the Komets, compiling a 3-4-0-1 record with a 2.57 goals-against average (GAA) and a .915 save percentage (SV%). In addition, Deslauriers appeared in two games with Norfolk of the American Hockey League (AHL) this season, going 1-1-0 with a 3.51 GAA and .889 SV%. He made his season debut on Jan. 20 at Charlotte and earned his first win on Feb. 8 vs. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton, stopping 31-of-32 shots for a 4-1 victory. The 6-4, 203-pound netminder was recalled on Feb. 9 from Norfolk but did not appear in a game for the Ducks.
Signed as a free agent on July 12, 2011, Deslauriers has appeared in 62 career NHL contests with Anaheim and Edmonton, posting a 23-32-4 record with three shutouts, a 3.24 GAA and a .901 SV%.
