Saturday: Anaheim has officially announced the contract.
Thursday: The Ducks have kept some of their center depth intact. CapFriendly reports that they’ve re-signed Sam Carrick to a one-year contract. The one-way deal pays him $700K, the league minimum salary for 2018-19.
The 27-year-old recently wrapped up his second season in Anaheim’s organization and was rather productive with their AHL affiliate in San Diego. Carrick recorded 32 goals and 29 assists in 61 regular seasons with the Gulls, setting career highs across the board in the process. He also chipped in with 14 points in 16 postseason contests. That was enough to earn him a one-way deal for the first time in his career.
Carrick also got into six games with Anaheim, his first NHL action since 2015-16 with Toronto. He held his own in that small sample, logging a little over ten minutes a night on their fourth line. He will likely get a chance in training camp to lock down that role on a more permanent basis.
