Anaheim Ducks sign Carl Hagelin

August 14, 2015

Having been on the cusp of the Stanley Cup Finals for quite some time now with their current nucleus, the Anaheim Ducks today inked the player they hope will put them over the hump, as the club announced that it signed left wing Carl Hagelin to a four-year contract through the 2018-19 NHL season.  Other outlets have reported that the deal is worth $16 million.

Hagelin, 26, was acquired from the New York Rangers with second-round (59th overall) and sixth-round (179th overall) selections in the 2015 NHL Draft in exchange for left wing Emerson Etem and a second-round (41st overall) pick in the 2015 NHL Draft.

In the 6-0, 186-pound Hagelin, the Ducks will get a quick left wing capable of killing penalties. Hagelin also was one of three Rangers to appear in all 82 games last season, and with 17-18=35 points and a +18 rating, he tied for third among team leaders in game-winning goals (4), tied for second in even-strength goals (16) and second in shots on goal (185).

Hagelin collected 58-72=130 points with a +57 rating and 132 penalty minutes (PIM) in 266 career NHL games with the Rangers. Hagelin also made four consecutive trips to the Stanley Cup Playoffs, recording 12-14=26 points with 39 PIM in 73 games.

A native of Sodertalje, Sweden, Hagelin helped his country to a silver medal at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games in Sochi, Russia. He was also a member of Team Sweden at the 2008 IIHF World Junior Championship, earning a silver medal in his first major international tournament.
