CHICAGO -- The Anaheim Ducks placed left wing Todd Fedoruk on injured reserve Saturday, one day after he suffered facial lacerations in a loss at Minnesota.

Fedoruk, who will return to Anaheim for further evaluation, has registered three assists in 10 games this season. He also has 36 penalty minutes, placing him second on the team.

The 27-year-old Fedoruk recorded four goals, 19 assists and 174 penalty minutes in 76 games last season, his first with the Ducks. He has 14 tallies and 40 assists with 701 penalty minutes in six NHL seasons with Philadelphia and Anaheim.

To replace Fedoruk on the roster, the Ducks recalled right wing Shawn Thornton from Portland of the American Hockey League. The 29-year-old did not register a point in 10 contests with Chicago in 2005-06 and has two goals and one assist in 31 career games with the Blackhawks.
