Anaheim Ducks sign F Tim Jackman to 1-year contract extension after just 20 games

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Forward Tim Jackman has agreed to a one-year, $637,500 contract extension with the Anaheim Ducks for next season.

The Ducks announced the deal Saturday.

Jackman has fit in well in just 20 games with the NHL-leading Ducks, who acquired him from Calgary for a sixth-round draft pick on Nov. 21, 2013.

The rugged right wing has two points and 48 penalty minutes with Anaheim, his sixth NHL team. He has played several roles for the Ducks, filling in on multiple lines and providing physical defensive play.

Ducks coach Bruce Boudreau also said centre Mathieu Perreault's upper-body injury is likely to keep him out of their home game against Carolina on Sunday night. Perreault was hurt early in the third period of Anaheim's 1-0 win over St. Louis on Friday.

Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
