Shea Theodore and Michael Sgarbossa will be scratched from Tuesday's tilt with Nashville.

Theodore has had a nice season so far for AHL San Diego with a goal and eight points from the blue line through 13 games. Sgarbossa meanwhile has been just as effective, albeit as a forward with two goals and eight points in 12 games. It wouldn't seem either have much fantasy value at this time though.
Nov 17 - 7:45 PM

Shea Theodore has been called up by the Ducks.

Josh Manson did not play Monday because of flu-like symptoms, so Korbinian Holzer took his place in the lineup. Anaheim didn't have an extra blueliner until Theodore was brought up, so it's unclear if he'll get to make his NHL debut Tuesday night.
Nov 17 - 12:35 PM

Shea Theodore has been assigned to the minors.

He was brought up due to injuries, but didn't see any NHL action. The Ducks don't play until Thursday, so Theodore could be back with the team depending on the status of their defenders.

As it turns out, rookie defender Shea Theodore did not make his NHL debut on Sunday against the Wild.

The offensively-minded Theodore was called up presumably to replace Simon Despres, who was placed on injured reserve earlier in the day. He'll have to wait at least one more game to finally crack the NHL.
Oct 18 - 8:51 PM

Shea Theodore is expected to make his NHL debut on Sunday night against the Wild.

The 20-year-old defender Theodore was the 26th overall pick in the 2013 draft, and has managed to score 12 points in 15 career AHL games. Small sample size to be sure, but he did score 41 goals and 149 points from 2012-14 in the WHL. Something to think about if you're in a deep league.

The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Shea Theodore from the AHL.

With defensensemen Clayton Stoner and Simon Despres both nursing injuries, the Ducks needed some bodies on the back end. The 20-year-old was Anaheim's first round pick, 26th overall, in the 2013 NHL Entry Draft.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau would like to see Shea Theodore work on his reaction time.

Theodore was reassigned to AHL San Diego on Monday. "When we first drafted him, he wasn’t very big and that was the biggest worry about him," Boudreau said. "He competes against men and it doesn’t seem to bother him at all. He can see the ice. He makes really good plays. He’s a very intelligent player. And he can skate. But the speed of the game is a little different. Just like all young guys, you got to make plays quicker. Because you don’t have that extra half a second to get the shot away. You don’t have that extra second to get a pass away. You got to get (the puck), move it. Get it, move it all the time." Theodore had 13 goals and 48 points in 43 WHL contests last season.

Shea Theodore has been assigned to San Diego of the AHL.

The Ducks also sent Matt Bailey, Joseph Cramarossa, Nicolas Kerdiles, Brian McGrattan, Jaycob Megna, Brandon Montour, Stefan Noesen, Andrew O'Brien, Shane O'Brien and Harry Zolnierczyk to the minors. Ryan Faragher, Eric Knodel, Antoine Laganiere, Kyle MacKinnon and Kenny Ryan were released from their PTOs and sent to San Diego as well.

The Anaheim Ducks have recalled Shea Theodore from the minors.

The Ducks first round pick and 26th overall in the 2013 Draft is a high scoring defenseman who may need some more minor league seasoning. He played a bit in Norfolk at the end of the season but had 13 goals and 48 points in 43 games for Seattle of the WHL. He shouldn't see any playoff action but with the Admirals eliminated from play in the AHL, the chance to be with the Ducks during the Stanley Cup run, can only help him in the future.
Apr 26 - 6:47 AM

The Anaheim Ducks announced that they have returned prospect Shea Theodore to the Seattle Thunderbirds of the WHL.

Theodore was with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Norfolk on a rehab assignment. He is one of the Ducks' better young prospects, but he is still only 19-years-old.

The Anaheim Ducks recalled Shea Theodore on Sunday.

Both Cam Fowler and Francois Beauchemin are questionable to play against the Canucks tonight. Theodore has three goals and two assists in five games with the Norfolk Admirals.

Shea Theodore (elbow) returned to practice on Friday.

Theodore suffered an ulnar collateral ligament sprain at the start of training camp and has been out ever since. It was originally thought he would be out of action for four-six weeks but it has been six weeks already and he is still two-three weeks away from returning to action. He is outstanding offensively as the blueliner had 79 points in 70 WHL games last season. He should go back to Seattle of the WHL upon his return but he is worth a flier in keeper leagues.

Shea Theodore has suffered an ulnar collateral ligament sprain.

Theodore will be out for four-to-six weeks as a result. He was a long shot to make the Ducks' opening game roster to begin with, but this will deny him the opportunity to show what he can do during the preseason.
Fri, Sep 19, 2014 01:53:00 PM

Shea Theodore has an outside chance of making the Ducks' opening night roster, as the tall but slender defenseman will likely need to beef up in his final OHL season before sticking around with Anaheim.

It's not impossible for the strong-skating offensive defenseman to make the big squad with an impressive training camp, but the Ducks are a deep team with limited playing time for a 19 year-old rookie who lacks NHL-ready strength and defensive skills. Theodore boasts a terrific shot and smooth passing skills which earned him 79 points in 70 games last season in the WHL. He will likely torch that league once again this coming season before getting a real opportunity to play in the pros.
