ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks have reassigned goalie Frederik Andersen to their AHL affiliate despite his 6-1 start to his NHL career.

The NHL-leading Ducks also assigned defenceman Sami Vatanen to Norfolk on Thursday while recalling centre Peter Holland and goalie Viktor Fasth.

Andersen is the first NHL goalie to win the first six decisions of his career since Damian Rhodes did it for Toronto in the early 1990s. The Danish goalie had a 1.66 goals-against average with a .943 save percentage while backing up Jonas Hiller.

Fasth hasn't played since Oct. 16 with a lower-body injury. He began the season 2-1 with a 3.33 GAA.

Vatanen has five points in 17 games for the Ducks.

Holland returns to the Ducks after scoring one goal in four games earlier this season.
