The Vancouver Canucks have reassigned left wing MIKE DUCO to the Chicago Wolves.

DUCO appeared in three games with the Canucks after being recalled on Jan. 8. He earned his first career National Hockey League point when he dished out an assist on Jan. 10 at Tampa Bay.

The 24-year-old forward ranks seventh on the Wolves with eight goals and shares eighth with 13 points in 33 games this season. He has collected seven points (4G, 3A) in his last 10 outings after posting six points (4G, 2A) in his first 23 games this year.

The Toronto native set professional career-highs with 20 goals and 31 points in 67 outings with the Rochester Americans last season. He paced the Americans with 20 goals and ranked seventh on the squad with 31 points.

The Wolves close out their season-high six-game homestand when they host the Texas Stars at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 18 at the Allstate Arena. For more information or to buy tickets to the game, visit chicagowolves.com or call 1-800-THE-WOLVES.
