Ducks Sign Three Players

The Ducks announced today that they have signed left wing Jason King, free-agent left wing Dan LaCouture and defenseman Brett Skinner to one-year contracts. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

King, 25, (9/14/81), played in 55 NHL games with Vancouver from 2002 to 2004, scoring 12-11=23 points. The 6-1, 195-pound forward played with Manitoba, Vancouver’s primary development affiliate in the American Hockey League (AHL), in parts of four seasons from 2002-2006.  

A native of Corner Brook, Newfoundland, King played with Skelleftea AIK HK in the Swedish Elite league last season, scoring 15-4=19 points with 20 penalty minutes (PIM) in 55 games. He was acquired from Vancouver with a conditional third-round choice in the 2009 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for Ryan Shannon on June 23, 2007.  He was drafted by Vancouver in the seventh round (212th overall) of the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

LaCouture, 30 (4/18/77), played in six games with New Jersey last year, going scoreless with seven PIM.  In addition, the Hyannis, Mass., native played in 39 games with Lowell in 2006-07 and scored 8-4=12 points with 33 PIM. 

 

In 326 career NHL games with Edmonton, Pittsburgh, New York Rangers, Boston and New Jersey, the 6-3, 215-pound LaCouture has scored 18-25=43 points with 338 PIM.  He was originally drafted by the New York Islanders in the second round (29th overall) of the 1996 NHL Entry Draft.

Skinner, 24, (6/28/83), split the 2006-07 season between Portland (AHL) and Omaha (AHL).  With Portland, he scored 6-12=18 points with 24 PIM in 41 games played.  In Omaha, Skinner scored 0-6=6 points with two PIM in 21 games.  In five playoff games with Omaha, he scored 0-3=3 points.  In addition to his time in Portland and Omaha, Skinner played in five games with Augusta of the ECHL and scored 1-3=4 points.

Skinner was acquired from Vancouver with a second-round choice in the 2006 NHL Entry Draft in exchange for defenseman Keith Carney and defenseman Juha Alen on March 9, 2006.  He was originally drafted by Vancouver in the third round (68th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft.
