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.
He's, believe it or not, actually one of my favorite guys, and I've ended up trading him twice. I appreciate what he's done.
