Ducks sign forward Silfverberg to four-year contract

Friday, 08.07.2015 / 7:32 PM / News

Curtis Zupke - NHL.com Correspondent

Jakob Silfverberg sounded like he knew he had to exercise patience when it came to getting a contract from the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks' top priority of the offseason was extending center Ryan Kesler, and they also have other moving parts.

But the wait paid off when Anaheim on Friday announced a four-year contract for Silfverberg, 24, who was a restricted free agent.

"My agent and I had a pretty good talk, and we said we were in no hurry," Silfverberg said from Sweden. "We just wanted to get the right kind of contract. … I think both parties are really happy about the contract. I'm super-excited. It might have taken a little longer than I expected, but that's how it is."

Top prospect Matthews to play '15-16 in Switzerland

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. -- Auston Matthews, a frontrunner to be the top pick of the 2016 NHL Draft, announced Friday that he will play for Zurich in the Swiss National League in 2015-16.

The announcement came after months of speculation that the 17-year-old center might instead play for Everett of the Western Hockey League. Matthews was selected in the third round (No. 57) by Everett in the 2012 WHL Bantam Draft.

Matthews, who signed a one-year contract with Zurich and said he will join the Lions after he turns 18 on Sept. 17, is with 32 other U.S. prospects at United States National Evaluation Camp. The U.S. will play Finland on Saturday.

"I am deeply grateful to the ZSC Lions for the opportunity to be a part of their wonderful organization and look forward to joining them next month," Matthews said in a statement. "For now, however, my commitment is to my teammates and USA Hockey as we prepare to win tomorrow’s game."

Philadelphia Flyers fantasy hockey outlook

Matt Cubeta - NHL.com Fantasy Insider

As part of NHL.com's offseason 30 in 30 package, fantasy hockey insiders Matt Cubeta and Pete Jensen will break down each team's fantasy landscape. They will look at the players at the top of the ranks, an undervalued player, an overvalued player, a deep sleeper (players likely ranked outside the top 200 overall players) and the goalie outlook for each NHL team.

Leading the way: Claude Giroux and Jakub Voracek

Giroux cracks my offseason fantasy rankings at No. 1 and Voracek comes in at No. 20. Both players are elite fantasy contributors and should be viewed that way again this season. Though Voracek finished last season as the No. 4 overall player in Yahoo leagues, I would expect some regression this season. His 81 points were a career high and a big jump from the 62 he had in 2013-14. He also had 78 penalty minutes, the most of his career, but two unlikely fighting majors and two 10-minute misconducts contributed to that total. I wouldn't expect that again.
