Ducks sign Syvret to one-year deal
The Anaheim Ducks announced Wednesday that they've signed defenseman Danny Syvret a one-year contract. No financial terms were disclosed.

Syvret, 25, appeared in 21 games for the Philadelphia Flyers last season, scoring 2 goals and adding 2 assists with a plus-1 rating and 12 penalty minutes. The two goals were the first of his NHL career, with his first goal opening the scoring at the 2010 Bridgestone Winter Classic on Jan. 1 at Fenway Park, a 2-1 Flyers overtime loss to the Boston Bruins.

He missed nearly three months with a separated shoulder suffered in January, and when he returned to health, the Flyers sent him to their AHL club, the Adirondack Phantoms, to finish the season. In 15 AHL games, he had 5 goals and 13 points.

A 2005 third-round pick of the Edmonton Oilers, Syvret has 5 points in 49 NHL games with the Oilers and Flyers.


Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
