ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has recalled center Mark Hartigan from the Portland Pirates, Anaheim’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL). At the same time, the club has reassigned center Tim Brent to Portland.

Hartigan, 29, (10/15/77), has played in 76 career NHL games, scoring 16-10=26 points. He appeared in three games with Anaheim following his acquisition on Jan. 26, 2007, going scoreless.

Hartigan has also played in six games this season with the Columbus Blue Jackets, scoring 1-2=3 points while also scoring 19-13=32 points in 34 games with Syracuse (AHL).

Hartigan was acquired with Joe Motzko and a 2007 fourth-round draft pick from Columbus in exchange for left wing Curtis Glencross, center Zenon Konopka and a seventh round draft pick in either 2007 or 2008 (Anaheim’s option).

Brent, 23 (3/10/84), has played in 15 games with the Ducks this season on two separate recalls, scoring 1-0=1 point with six PIM.
