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.
