The Ducks have signed Andy Welinski to a one-year deal worth $750K.

Welinski played the entire 2020 campaign in Lehigh Valley (AHL), where he had eight goals and 13 assists (21 points) in 42 games. Welinski has only appeared in 33 NHL games since being drafted in the third-round in 2011. After one year in the Flyers organization, Welinski returns to the Ducks and likely the San Diego Gulls (AHL).

The Ducks have signed Kevin Shattenkirk to a three-year deal worth $11.7 million ($3.9M AAV).

Shattenkirk was bought out by the Rangers prior to the 2020 season, allowing him to signed a one-year deal with the Lightning. Shattenkirk was able to build his value back up while winning a Stanley Cup, posting 47 points (11G / 36A) in 92 combined regular season and playoff games. In Anaheim he'll play in the top-4 with either Hampus Lindholm or Cam Fowler and should see ample PP exposure.

The Ducks have signed Brendan Guhle to a two-year, $1.6 million contract extension ($800k AAV).

Guhle, who was acquired from Buffalo last February as a part of the Brandon Montour trade, split his time evenly between the AHL and NHL in 2019-20. During his time with Anaheim, he had four goals and four assists (eight points) in 30 games. With the San Diego Gulls, he was second among team defensemen with 14 points (4G / 10A) despite only appearing in 27 games. He should be a full-time NHLer in 2021 as the Ducks continue to rebuild their once promising blueline.
