Two weeks after being bought out by the Arizona Coyotes, Antoine Vermette has landed with a new team.
The 34-year-old centre has signed a two-year deal with the Anaheim Ducks. The Orange County Register's Eric Stephens reports the deal is for two years and $3.5 million.
In 76 games last season with the Coyotes, Vermette had 17 goals and 21 assists.
A native of Saint-Agapit, Quebec, Vermette is heading into his 13th National Hockey League season. Originally taken in the second round (55th overall) of the NHL Entry Draft by the Ottawa Senators out of the Victoriaville Tigres of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, Vermette has also spent time with the Columbus Blue Jackets and Chicago Blackhawks, with whom he won the 2015 Stanley Cup.
His best season offensively came in 2009-10 as a member of Blue Jackets when he recorded 27 goals and added 38 assists.
In 910 career NHL contests, Vermette has 211 goals and 260 assists.
