ANAHEIM, Calif. — Center Isac Lundestrom has agreed to a two-year, $3.6 million contract with the Anaheim Ducks.
Lundestrom and the Ducks avoided arbitration with the deal. Anaheim general manager Pat Verbeek has re-signed all of the club’s restricted free agents.
The 22-year-old Lundestrom had 16 goals and 19 assists last year in his first full NHL season, ranking fourth on the roster in goals. The Swede also excelled as a penalty killer, tying Corey Perry‘s franchise record with four short-handed goals.
The Ducks’ first-round pick in 2018 has 22 goals and 22 assists in 151 career games. After the retirement of longtime captain Ryan Getzlaf, Lundestrom is likely to be Anaheim’s third-line center next season behind Trevor Zegras and new free-agent signee Ryan Strome.
