Anaheim Ducks sign veteran goalie Jason LaBarbera to one-year contract to provide depth

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed veteran goalie Jason LaBarbera to a one-year, $750,000 contract.

The Ducks announced the deal with LaBarbera on Tuesday.

LaBarbera, who joins his sixth NHL organization, played seven games with the Edmonton Oilers last season, spending most of the year in the AHL.

LaBarbera also has played for the New York Rangers, Los Angeles, Vancouver and Phoenix. He won a career-best 15 games for the Kings during the 2007-08 season.

The 34-year-old goalie will provide competition for youngsters Frederik Andersen and John Gibson in training camp in Anaheim.

The Pacific Division champion Ducks allowed longtime starter Jonas Hiller to leave as a free agent this summer. Hiller signed with Calgary on Tuesday.

Quote of the Day

With this being the last year [at the Coliseum], we'd love to try to get back to the dance like we did against Pittsburgh and prove ourselves and go even further. It's an important year.

— New York Islanders coach Jack Capuano
