ANAHEIM, Calif. - Centre David Steckel has re-signed with the Anaheim Ducks.

The NHL-leading Ducks assigned Steckel to their AHL affiliate in Norfolk on Monday.

Anaheim also assigned goalie Viktor Fasth and left wing Matt Beleskey to Norfolk on long-term injury conditioning loans.

The Ducks acquired Steckel from Toronto last March. He scored six points in 21 games before playing in all seven post-season games.

Steckel is a faceoff specialist and a favourite of Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau, who coached him in Washington. The 10-year NHL veteran has 79 points in 418 games.

Fasth has been out since Oct. 16 with a lower-body injury. Frederik Andersen has won his first six NHL starts in his place.

Anaheim has the league's best record at 15-3-1. The Ducks open a four-game trip Tuesday at Florida.
