Mark Bell is getting another chance in the NHL, agreeing to a one-year contract Wednesday with the Anaheim Ducks. Terms were not disclosed.

Bell is a former first-round draft pick of the Blackhawks (No. 8 in 1998) who put together consecutive seasons of 20-plus goals early in his career. He hasn't played in the NHL since 2007-08, spending the past two seasons in the Swiss National League.

In 445 regular-season games for Chicago, San Jose and Toronto, Bell has 87 goals and 182 points.
Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
