ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed new defenceman Mathieu Carle to a one-year contract.

The Ducks reached the agreement Monday the restricted free agent.

Anaheim acquired Carle from Montreal last Friday in a trade for former first-round pick Mark Mitera.

Carle spent last season with the Canadiens' AHL affiliate in Hamilton, scoring 29 points in 68 games with a plus-19 rating while making the all-star team.

The 23-year-old made his NHL debut early in the 2009 season, playing in three games for Montreal.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
