The Anaheim Ducks signed right wing Brad Staubitz to a two-year contract through the 2013-14 NHL season Sunday night. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Staubitz, 27, appeared in 62 contests split with the Minnesota Wild and Montreal Canadiens in 2011-12, scoring one goal while racking up 121 penalty minutes. The 6-1, 215-pound winger appeared in a career-high 71 contests in 2010-11 with the Wild, scoring a personal best nine points (four goals, five assists) with 173 penalty minutes.

In 215 career NHL contests, Staubitz has earned 19 points (nine goals, 10 assists) with 480 penalty minutes. An Edmonton native, Staubitz originally signed as a free agent with the San Jose Sharks on Sept. 18, 2005. He was acquired by Minnesota in exchange for a fifth-round selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft on June 21, 2010, and was claimed off waivers by Montreal on Feb. 27, 2012.

I've been getting frustrated lately, and the only thing keeping me sane was the team winning and other people stepping up and scoring. Then you just kind of let it go and realize you can end the series with one shot, that frustration goes away for a brief moment, and that's what happened.
