Piskula signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ducks on Wednesday, Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports.

Piskula appeared in one game with the Predators last season, but otherwise skated exclusively for AHL Milwaukee, where he tallied 17 points in 67 games. The 30-year-old will more than likely spend his time at AHL San Diego in the Ducks' system in 2015-16.

Piskula was reassigned to AHL Milwaukee on Tuesday, Kristopher Martel of FOX Sports reports.

Piskula was recalled by the Predators in advance of last Saturday's regular-season finale against the Stars with three blueliners missing the game with injuries, but with at least Shea Weber (lower body) and Roman Josi (lower body) expected back for Wednesday's playoff opener against the Blackhawks, there won't be a need to carry the 30-year-old any longer. He'll play in Milwaukee's remaining two games of the AHL season.

Piskula was recalled from AHL Milwaukee on an emergency basis Saturday.

With the Predators ruling out defensemen Shea Weber, Roman Josi, and Cody Franson for Saturday's regular-season finale against the Stars due to minor injuries, Piskula will get the chance to make his first appearance of the season for the Predators. The 30-year-old has appeared in 12 career NHL games with the Kings, Flames, and Predators, failing to record a single point.

Joe Piskula has been returned to the minors.

He skated in two games with Nashville during his NHL recall, but he didn't do anything to warrant fantasy attention.

The Predators have recalled Joe Piskula from the AHL for Saturday night's game against the Flyers.

Nashville has very few healthy defensemen at the moment so the summoning of Piskula makes perfect sense. That said, we don't expect Piskula to make a fantasy impact as he is neither offensive minded or pugillistic.
