Good bye Sexy!  The Ducks traded winger Dan Sexton to the Tampa Bay Lightning in exchange for center Kyle Wilson. Sexton split time between Anaheim and their AHL affiliate from 2009-2011.   He played a total of 88 games in Anaheim and one playoff game.  He scored 13 goals and 32 points during that time.  Sexton was not recalled at all during the 2011-2012 season and spent last year and this year with Syracuse of the AHL. Wilson, 28, has also played for Syracuse this season, earning 5-0=5 points with six penalty minutes.  He is a veteran of 411 total AHL contests, scoring 146-164=310 points.  Wilson was originally drafted by Minnesota in the ninth round of the 2004 draft. In addition to acquiring Wilson, the Ducks have also recalled Patrick Maroon and Devante Smith-Pelly from Syracuse.  With injuries to both Kyle Palmieri (upper body) and Brad Staubitz (facial laceration), keeping them out longer than a day to day basis, the recalls were necessary to bolster Anaheim's line up.
