ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed right wing Brian McGrattan to a one-year contract.
McGrattan, 29 (9/2/81), has appeared in 182 career NHL contests with Ottawa, Phoenix and Calgary, collecting 3-11=14 points with 395 penalty minutes (PIM). He most recently played with Calgary in 2009-10, scoring 1-3=4 points in 34 contests with 86 PIM. A native of Hamilton, Ontario, McGrattan appeared in a career-high 60 contests in 2005-06 with Ottawa, scoring 2-3=5 points with 141 PIM.
The 6-4, 235-pound winger appeared in 59 contests with Syracuse and Providence of the American Hockey League (AHL) last season, scoring 10-5=15 points with 153 PIM. He opened his ninth professional season with Providence before being acquired by Anaheim along with Sean Zimmerman from Boston in exchange for Stefan Chaput and David Laliberte. McGrattan spent the remainder of the season with Syracuse, earning 6-4=10 points with 56 PIM in 20 games. Selected by Los Angeles in the fourth round (104th overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft, McGrattan has earned 35-27=62 points with 1,206 PIM in 256 career AHL contests
Probably just a signing for the AHL unless Parros gets injured
If any more tough guy signings happen I will just be putting them on my list instead of doing that and making a new post. I might be a little slow on updating the list too so here is an advance apology lol.
Thanks to everyone for following and posting signings. Cant wait for the season to start.
Godard to Dallas for two years and MacIntyre to Pittsburgh for one.
MacIntyre probably only sees the ice for Atlantic Division games...probably still tops 100 PIMs easily.
“The most terrifying fact about the universe is not that it is hostile, but that it is indifferent. If we can come to terms with this indifference and accept the challenges of life within the boundaries of death, our existence as a species can have genuine meaning and fulfillment. However vast the darkness, we must supply our own light.” - Stanley Kubrick
