ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Mighty Ducks of Anaheim announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has re-signed center Samuel Pahlsson to a two-year contract and signed defenseman Ladislav Smid (pronounced SHM-EED) to a three-year entry level contract. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

“We are extremely pleased to have Sammy back. He is a responsible player at both ends of the rink and reliable in the face-off circle.” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke. “Ladislav Smid is a top young defenseman with both the size and skill to be an impact NHL player in the future.”

Last season, the 6-0, 208-pound Pahlsson played in 48 games for the Swedish Elite League Champions, Frolunda, scoring 6-18=24 points with 56 penalty minutes (PIM). In 14 playoff games, the Ornskoldsvik, Sweden native posted 4-7=11 points with 24 PIM.

Pahlsson also represented Sweden on two occasions in 2004, at the World Championships and the World Cup of Hockey. At the World Championships, Pahlsson collected 2-5=7 points with 28 PIM in nine games. He finished tied for third on the team in scoring and led Sweden in penalty minutes. In the World Cup, he was scoreless in four games played with six PIM.

Pahlsson, 27 (12/17/77), was acquired from Boston in exchange for Andrei Nazarov and Patrick Traverse on Nov. 18, 2000. He was originally drafted by Colorado in the seventh round (176th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.
