The Ducks recalled left wing Nick Ritchie and center Michael Sgarbossa and confirmed that defenseman Simon Despres remains out with concussion symptoms.
Ritchie, 19, their top draft pick from 2014, was tied for third in the American Hockey League with nine goals in 12 games. He could make his NHL debut when the Ducks begin a four-game trip Monday.
The Ducks have 28 goals in 17 games and their top-four scorers from last season have a combined six goals.
"The thing [the recall] says to me is, 'Hey, we mean business here,'" Ducks Coach Bruce Boudreau said. "We've got guys that aren't playing as well as they could."
