Found May 22, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
PLAYERS: Jonas Hiller
TEAMS: Anaheim Ducks
I am always on the lookout for players who are signed who might make a significant impact in the NHL.  I pointed out the Roman Cervenka signing by Calgary.  There is another one that I think could make a big impact.  The Anaheim Ducks have signed Viktor Fasth who was the Swedish goaltender in the World Championships.  He is a 29 year old goalie who signed a 1 year $1 million one way contract.  He is expected to be Jonas Hiller’s backup goalie but if he plays as well as he might, he could take over as their starter.

Steve Palumbo: Ducks Sign Swedish Goalie Victor Fasth; Dan Ellis Done in Anaheim?

The Anaheim Ducks may have unofficially ended their relationship with oft-injured back-up goalie Dan Ellis by inking Swedish netminder Viktor Fasth to a one-year, one-way deal worth $1 million. Ellis is an unrestricted free agent and more than likely wasn't in the Ducks future plans. Ellis earned $1.5 million this past season, but only appeared in 10 games. He missed most...

Boudreau was originally under contract with Anaheim through 2012-13. “Since joining the organization last November, Bruce has done...

Devo.

Devante Smith-Pelly is one of my favorite Ducks, and a nice young player to put around the excellent core the team has built. He's BIG, hits, skates pretty well, and has a nice shot combined with the ability and willingness to go to the front of the net. He can also contribute to both the power play and penalty kill units.I was fortunate to snag this snazzy and zazzy on-card...

Oh Captain, My Captain.

This post marks my first scanning since breaking my wrist. Not bad, I suppose. Anyways, I was really pleased to see Ryan Getzlaf's inclusion in the ITG Captain C set released earlier this year. I absolutely love picking up a hit that features Getz with the C on his sweater. I was able to snag the below beauty for $5.99 shipped as the sole bidder.The Silver Jersey variation has...
