Laganiere, 24, had 10 goals and 18 points in 72 games last season with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League. He had 46 goals and 85 points in 122 games over four seasons with Yale and helped the Bulldogs reach the Frozen Four in 2013.
The Ducks signed Laganiere to a two-year, entry-level contract on April 16, 2013.
That was something I've been dreaming of, something I've told myself before the third period I was going to do ... It was an amazing feeling. It's hard to describe. I didn't believe it went in at first but when I saw all the reaction and all the fans going crazy and my teammates going crazy, it's just an unbelievable feeling. I didn't know what to do. I didn't know whether to jump or just skate and do a Theo Fleury. I don't think I'm the same caliber player he is so I couldn't do it.
