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

He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done. He was one year away from being an unrestricted free agent, and I felt with this opportunity, that it was a chance that we were able to get somebody for him in Nick Bonino and Adam Clendening.
