"We needed to get faster, so the primary goal was to add some speed up front with some depth signings," general manager Bob Murray told the Ducks website. "... We did inquire about other big names on the market over the last week, but found the prices extremely high. We will continue to look to improve our team in other areas."
Signed by Pittsburgh on March 9, 2016, Rowney has 12 points (five goals, seven assists) in 71 NHL games and three assists in 23 playoff games. He won the Stanley Cup with the Penguins in 2017.
