The Ducks have signed forward Chris Wagner
to a two-year contract extension through the 2017-18 NHL season. Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Wagner, 24 (5/27/91), has scored four goals (4-0=4) with 28 penalty minutes (PIM) in 46 career games with the Ducks and Colorado Avalanche. The 6-0, 195-pound forward scored his first four career NHL goals with the Avalanche this season, including his first two in consecutive games on Nov. 25 vs. Ottawa and Nov. 28 vs. Winnipeg.
Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (122nd overall) of the 2010 NHL Draft, Wagner began the 2015-16 season with Anaheim before being claimed on waivers by Colorado on Nov. 15. Wagner was claimed on waivers again by Anaheim and subsequently assigned to San Diego on Feb. 25.
A native of Walpole, MA, Wagner collected 6-4=10 points with a +1 rating and 22 PIM in 15 games with San Diego this season. He has also earned 43-44=87 points in 209 career AHL games with San Diego (2015-16) and Norfolk (2012-15).
