On the Anaheim Ducks …

Eric Stephens of the OC Register: Defenseman Sami Vatanen returned the Ducks lineup after missing their first nine games of the season. Vatanen had shoulder surgery back in May.

On the Arizona Coyotes …

Craig Morgan of Arizona Sports: The Coyotes have traded a fifth-round pick to the New Jersey Devils for goaltender Scott Wedgewood.

“We just need someone to stop the puck,” general manager John Chayka said. “We’d been looking at some depth goalies for a while. Certainly, as things progressed here we thought it was necessary to get someone in here that had some experience and had some success at the American Hockey League level.”
