I kinda had a feeling this would happen. I actually like the fit. I think Calder would be a great addition for the Ducks. A third line grit assignment would be perfect under a Duck-style of play. Any Duck fans know where he will likely be playing on the depth chart?

With Carter injured and Artyukhin suspended... The Ducks could look like this:
Ryan - Getzlaf - Perry
Calder - Koivu - Selanne
Nokelainen - Christensen - Lupul
Brown - Marchant - Parros
Christensen moved up to the 3rd line in the last game and showed some chemistry with Lupul. I'd like to try that again. I guess they will reunite Calder with Koivu and Selanne as the two finns hasn't been working since preseason and Calder was with them at that point.
But tbh... the lines could be pretty much anything as you will see below:
Ryan/Lupul - Getlzaf - Perry
Lupul/Ryan/Calder/Nokelainen/Marchant/Christensen - Koivu - Selanne
Nokelainen/Marchant/Christensen/Calder - Marchant/Christensen/Nokelainen - Lupul/Nokelainen/Christensen
Brown - Marchant/Christensen/Nokelainen - Parros
