ANAHEIM, Calif. -- Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere has left the Anaheim Ducks to return home to Montreal following his father's death.

Claude Giguere died Monday.

Giguere will miss Friday night's game at Edmonton and will rejoin the Ducks before Monday night's game at Vancouver. In a related move, the Ducks recalled goaltender David LeNeveu from the AHL's Iowa Chops.

Giguere remained on the bench in Tuesday night's 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers, replaced by Jonas Hiller.
