Ducks add size by signing 6-foot-4 D Clayton Stoner to 4-year contract in free agency

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed free agent defenceman Clayton Stoner to a four-year contract.

Listed at 6 foot 4 and 216 pounds, Stoner provides the Ducks a physical presence after spending the past four-plus seasons playing with the Minnesota Wild.

Stoner had a goal and four assists plus 84 penalty minutes in 63 games last season. Overall, the Wild's 2004 third-round draft pick has four goals and 27 assists and 296 penalty minutes in 227 games.

The Ducks announced the move on Tuesday, the opening day of the NHL's free agency period.

Quote of the Day

There's no discouragement in that room. There's no issues there at all to be honest with you. It's more about, 'Hey, it's opportunities for players.' And if we become that bad of a team because of one player, it's not a real good sign for our hockey club. So this is part of sports. It's part of hockey.
