Forward Mike Santorelli signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Monday.

Financial terms were not released, but ESPN.com reported the contract is worth $875,000.

Santorelli, 29, has 55 goals, 120 points and 70 penalty minutes in 336 regular-season games with the Nashville Predators, Florida Panthers, Winnipeg Jets, Vancouver Canucks and Toronto Maple Leafs. He had his best season with the Panthers in 2010-11, setting NHL career highs with 20 goals and 41 points. He has one goal in four Stanley Cup Playoff games.

Santorelli had 12 goals, 33 points and 14 penalty minutes in 79 games with Toronto and Nashville last season. He was acquired by Nashville with defenseman Cody Franson from Toronto in a trade for the Predators' first-round pick in the 2015 NHL Draft and forwards Brendan Leipsic and Olli Jokinen.

Santorelli, a Vancouver native, was selected by Nashville in the sixth round (No. 178) of the 2004 NHL Draft.
