The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Steve Eminger to a two-year contract.
Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.
"Steve Eminger brings a physical presence to our blueline and is very capable offensively," said Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray. "Being only 25 years old, we expect him to continue improving as a player and make a solid contribution this season."
Eminger, 25, has played in 283 career NHL games, scoring 69 points with 271 penalty minutes (PIM). He played in 71 NHL games last season with Philadelphia, Tampa Bay and Florida. A native of Woodbridge, Ontario, Eminger was drafted by Washington in the first round (12th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
