Duco, acquired from the Florida Panthers on Saturday in exchange for the rights to Russian wing Sergei Shirokov, had 10 penalty minutes and a minus-1 rating in two games with Florida last season. The 5-foot-10, 200-pound right wing is known for his willingness to stick up for teammates.

Terms of the contract were not revealed.
 
The 24-year-old native of Toronto spent most of the 2009-10 season with the Rochester Americans of the American Hockey League, producing 9 goals, 19 points and 111 penalty minutes in 59 games. In 12 career NHL games, Duco has 0 points and 60 penalty minutes.
