The Anaheim Ducks made headlines yesterday by signing Cam Fowler to an eight-year extension. On Sunday, they added depth to their blue line by inking Steve Olesky.

Per the Ducks, it’s a two-year, one-way deal for the 31-year-old Oleksy, who joins Anaheim after spending last season in the Pittsburgh Penguins organization.

Olesky spent the majority of the season in the American Hockey League, but played 11 games in Pittsburgh last season, with one assist.

He had previously spent time with the Washington Capitals, playing a total of 62 games for them over three seasons.

The Ducks also signed center Derek Grant to a one-year, one-way contract, and forwards Mike Liambas and Scott Sabourin to one-year, two-way contracts.
