Ducks sign LW Matt Beleskey to 2-year contract extension

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed left wing Matt Beleskey to a two-year contract extension through 2014-15.

He had eight goals, five assists and 56 penalty minutes in 42 games with Anaheim last season. The 25-year-old winger led the club in hits with 103 and was tied for seventh in goals.

He was selected in the fourth round of the 2006 NHL entry draft by the Ducks, and has 26 goals, 30 assists and 199 penalty minutes in 209 career games with them.

Quote of the Day

[He's] real confident with the puck now, getting it off his stick quick and no second-guessing. We need that. He's such a good guy in the room. He works so hard. That's the big thing. For not a big man, he just fights for every puck and when he scores, the guys appreciate that even more.
