ANAHEIM, Calif. The Anaheim Ducks have reassigned right wing Kyle Palmieri to the Syracuse Crunch, Anaheims primary development affiliate in the AHL. Palmieri, 21 (2191), appeared in 18 contests with the Ducks this season, scoring 4-3=7 points with six penalty minutes (PIM) and a 3 rating. He scored a career-high two goals on Mar. 14 vs. Detroit, becoming the first Ducks rookie to score two goals in a game since Matt Beleskey did so on Apr. 9, 2010 at St. Louis. Since his most recent recall from Syracuse on Mar. 12, Palmieri earned 3-2=5 points with a 4 rating in seven contests. In 42 games with Syracuse, the Smithtown, NY native has recorded 32-22=54 points with a 15 rating and 47 PIM. A 2012 AHL All-Star, Palmieri led the league in goals, co-led in game-winning goals (7) and ranked 10th in points at the time of his recall on Mar. 12. The 5-11, 196-pound winger also ranked second on Syracuse in scoring, third in power play goals (6) and tied for second in plusminus. Selected by Anaheim in the first round (26th overall) of the 2009 NHL Entry Draft, Palmieri made his NHL debut with the Ducks in 2010-11. At 19 years, nine months and two days, Palmieri was then the fifth-youngest player in club history to appear in a game on Nov. 3, 2010 vs. Tampa Bay. He has appeared in 28 career NHL games with Anaheim, collecting 5-3=8 points with six PIM.
