ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — The Ducks have signed defenseman Sami Vatanen to a two-year contract coming off his rookie season.

He had six goals, 15 assists and 22 penalty minutes in 48 games last season, when he won a bronze medal playing for Finland in the Sochi Olympics.

The 23-year-old Vatanen had one assist in five playoff games with the Ducks. He was drafted in the fourth round in 2009 by Anaheim.
