The Anaheim Ducks have signed unrestricted free agent forward Radek Dvorak to a contract that will expire at the end of this season.

The 36-year-old veteran will earn $675,000 and must clear waivers before joining the Ducks because he played games in Europe since the start of the NHL season.

Drafted by the Florida Panthers in the first round (10th overall) of the 1995 NHL Entry Draft, Dvorak spent this season playing for Davos in Swiss League where he registered seven points in seven games.

Last season, he registered four goals and 17 assists with the Dallas Stars and has 219 goals and 358 assists through 1,191 career NHL games with the Panthers, Rangers, Oilers, Blues, Thrashers and Stars.
