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

We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
