Been scrambling on this travel morning so I'm sure it's much out there but Ducks have re-signed winger Nicolas Deslauriers to a two-year deal. $1M AAV. ($1M in actual money each season).— Eric Stephens (@icemancometh) February 15, 2020
The 28 year old was acquired over the offseason from the Montreal Canadiens for a fourth round pick and has become a mainstay on the Ducks fourth line alongside Derek Grant and Carter Rowney. Deslauriers currently leads the NHL in fights with 12 total, five ahead of second place Predators forward Austin Watson.
Deslauriers has seven points (2G, 5A) in 46 games for Anaheim this season and figures to be one of the exposed players at the 2021 expansion draft with this deal.
