JF Jacques is stuck in a permanently revolving door between Anaheim and Syracuse. He has made more trips between the NHL and AHL than one can count.  This last call up to Anaheim could be his last.

Jacques was suspended for three games on Monday afternoon for an illegal hit to RJ Umberger's head on Sunday evening. 

This was not Jacques first offense.  He got five games in the pre-season as well for coming off the bench with the express purpose of starting a fight with Mike Duco of the Vancouver Canucks.

In response, the Ducks have sent Jacques back to Syracuse, where one can only hope he will stay for a long time.  His penalty for hitting Umberger drew a five minute major penalty at the end of the third period that could have cost the Ducks the game.   Coach Bruce Boudreau was not amused.  Not the way to stop your frequent flyer miles.

Francois Beauchemin's hit on Jeff Carter during the same game was also reviewed, but no fines or suspensions were handed out in response.  Carter suffered a separated shoulder in the hit.

Jonas Hiller, also injured in the Columbus game, remains day to day.  Jeff Deslauriers was recalled from Syracuse in response.  The Ducks will have the AHL tandem of Deslauriers and Iiro Tarkki to face the Dallas Stars on Tuesday evening.

The Syracuse to Anaheim express seems to be making daily trips.  Late last week, defenseman Mark Fraser was put on waivers and reassigned to Syracuse.  Kyle Cumiskey received the call up in his place.

Andrew Gordon was reassigned to Syracuse on Saturday after clearing waivers previously.
