The Anaheim Ducks on Friday re-signed restricted free agent Kyle Palmieri to a three-year contract. Financial terms of the deal were not release, but the Orange County Register reported the total value of the deal to be $4.4 million.
Palmieri had 10 goals -- including five game-winners -- and 21 points in 42 regular-season games last season, and added three goals and two assists in seven Stanley Cup Playoff games.
Taken by the Ducks with the 26th pick of the 2009 NHL Draft, Palmieri has 15 goals and 14 assists in 70 games, all with Anaheim, the past three seasons.
Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
