The Ducks have re-signed Justin Kloos to a one-year contract.
Kloos was in his second year in the Wild’s AHL farm system before being acquired for Pontus Aberg in January and spending 25 games with San Diego (AHL). Kloos has just two career NHL games under his belt and spent last year posting 18 goals and 27 assists (45 points) in 59 combined NHL games. Look for him to start 2020 with San Diego but could be one of the first call-ups for a thin Ducks team.
The Ducks acquired Justin Kloos from the Wild for Pontus Aberg.
Kloos has registered 12 goals and 18 assists (30 points) in 34 games with Iowa (AHL) this season. Aberg had a nice run but fell out of favour with head coach Randy Carlyle as of late, serving as a healthy scratch for four straight games. Kloos will report to San Diego (AHL) at first but could earn a call-up if the Ducks continue to struggle.
The Wild recalled Justin Kloos from Iowa (AHL).
Kloos, 23, was an undrafted free agent who turned pro last season after finishing up his senior year at the University of Minnesota. Since joining Iowa, Kloos has collected two goals and two assists (four points) in 15 AHL games and could make his NHL debut on Tuesday.
