Bret Hedican signs 1-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks (quack...)

Veteran defenseman Bret Hedican signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks today. The 38-year old former Carolina Hurricane posted 17 points last year, with a plus-rating to match. He played 6 seasons with Carolina (369 games), winning the Stanley Cup with the team in 2006 (when he went up against then-Oiler Chris Pronger, who is now his teammate, if not linemate...).

Hedican has also played with the Florida Panthers (two full seasons, two half seasons, 202 games), the Vancouver Canucks (four full seasons, two half seasons, 310 games; reached the 1994 Cup Finals with the team), and the St. Louis Blues (two and a half seasons, 107 games). He has also appeared eight seasons in the playoffs, at least once per team, for a total of 108 playoff games.

Welcome to the Pacific, Mr. Kristi Yamaguchi... you are now the sworn enemy of the San Jose Sharks (who, in all fairness, had to have been courting your talents in the offseason...).
