The Anaheim Ducks will welcome shutdown pivot Ryan Kesler to the lineup Wednesday night for his season debut versus the Vegas Golden Knights, the team announced.

Kesler underwent surgery in June to remove bone fragments in his hip. He joins a Ducks lineup that's been ravaged by injuries, but has recently started to take shape with key players returning to the ice.

Last season, Kesler suited up in all 82 games, registering 58 points while winning 57.4 percent of his faceoffs, earning him consideration for the Selke Trophy.
