The Ducks have signed right wing Tim Jackman
to a one-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Jackman, 33 (11/14/81), has collected 8-3=11 points with 146 penalty minutes (PIM) in 74 career games with the Ducks. Acquired from Calgary in exchange for a sixth-round selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft on Nov. 21, 2013, Jackman has recorded 5-2=7 points with a team-leading 84 PIM in 48 games this season. The 6-2, 224-pound winger’s five goals are the most since his career-high 10 in 2010-11, and his seven points are his highest total since 2011-12.
“[My family] is really grateful and appreciative that the Ducks wanted us around for another year,” he said. “It’s a good feeling right now. We’re happy to come back. Hopefully I can show that with the way I play.”
Selected by Columbus in the second round (38th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, Jackman has scored 32-43=75 points with 800 PIM in 474 career NHL games with Columbus, Phoenix, Los Angeles, New York Islanders, Calgary and Anaheim. He set career bests with the Flames in 2010-11, including goals (10), assists (13), points (23) and plus/minus (+4).
