ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed defenseman Kent Huskins (one-year) and center Petteri Wirtanen (three-year entry level) to contracts. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

Huskins, 27 (5/4/79), was the only player to appear in all 80 regular season games for the Portland Pirates last season, totaling 8-23=31 points with 64 penalty minutes. He tied for first among club defensemen in goals during the regular season. The 6-3, 215-pound blueliner added 3-6=9 points in 18 postseason games.

A native of Ottawa, Ontario, Huskins was signed as a free agent by Anaheim on August 22, 2005. He was drafted by Chicago in the sixth round (156th overall) of the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.
