In an effort to add a little more veteran punch (and perhaps a boost to the penalty killing) the Ducks have signed right wing Radek Dvorak to a one-year contract.  The contract is pro-rated at $675,000. Dvorak, 36, has been playing in Davos, Switzerland, all year.  He is the veteran of 1,191 NHL games with Florida, the New York Rangers, Edmonton, St. Louis, Atlanta and Dallas. He has 219 goals and 577 points. Dvorak did clear waivers and now he is waiting for his work visa before he can play any games in a Ducks uniform. "I'm so glad it was Anaheim," said Dvorak, who skated on Monday morning.  "It's nice to be back in the NHL, for sure. You always have high expectations and this team has that.  They're playing great. I've been watching them. It's been good so hopefully I can fit in and help." Coach Bruce Boudreau was pleased to add Dvorak to the line up. "He can still skate," said Boudreau. "He can still play. He's a good penalty-killer, which is something that we can use. We can never have enough of (that). So he's going to be a good advantage to our team." Work visas can take a while, but hopefully his paperwork will be done by the time the Ducks play San Jose on Wednesday.
