The Anaheim Ducks have agreed to terms with free-agent center Antoine Laganiere, who helped Yale to the NCAA championship, on a two-year entry-level contract. No financial details were disclosed.

The 6-foot-5, 214-pound native of Ile Cadieux, Quebec, completed his college career Saturday when the Bulldogs won the first hockey title in school history. Laganiere scored 15 goals and added 14 assists in 37 games for Yale, ranking third on the team in scoring.

Quote of the Day

We have no doubt how he can play. You don't, with four teams that are left, you're not getting here without good goaltending. All great goalies left, and [Bishop] is a top-tier goaltender in this league and he's shown it.

— Lightning coach Jon Cooper on goalie Ben Bishop, who shut out the Rangers in Game 5
