O'Brien was recalled by the Ducks on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Hampus Lindholm (upper body) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Lightning, so O'Brien was recalled to serve as the team's seventh defenseman in his absence. O'Brien has tallied two assists in 13 games with AHL San Diego this season, and likely won't draw into the Ducks' lineup during his stay with the big club unless Lindholm is forced to miss extended time.

O'Brien was placed on waivers Sunday, the Los Angeles Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

As long as he clears waivers, O'Brien will head to AHL San Diego for the start of the 2015-16 season. He played in nine regular season games with the Panthers last year, but spent the majority of his time in AHL San Antonio. During his time with San Antonio, he notched 11 goals and 19 assists over 51 games. Whether or not another team claims him off waivers, expect him to spend a lot of time in the AHL moving forward.

O'Brien recorded no goals or assists in 56 minutes of playing time during his February four-game stint, so this doesn't have any real fantasy ramifications.

O'Brien was reassigned to AHL San Antonio on Thursday, George Richards of the Miami Herald reports.

With forward Shawn Thornton (groin) considered very close to returning from IR, O'Brien's dismissal from the 23-man roster would open up a spot. The blueliner has only appeared in four games for the Panthers this season, averaging just 12:23 of ice time.

O'Brien was reassigned to AHL San Antonio on Wednesday, Renaud Lavoie of TVA Sports reports.

The Panthers brought O'Brien in late last week to serve as insurance on defense over their last three games, and as was expected, he never found his way into the lineup. Upon returning to San Antonio, he'll be forced to serve a two-game suspension for a charging incident from a Dec. 9 match against AHL Chicago.
