Clayton Stoner D ANA 4 Months

The Anaheim Ducks' willingness to give Clayton Stoner a fourth year played a big role in him signing with the team.

Stoner inked a four-year, $13 million contract on July 1. He had five points and 84 penalty minutes in 63 games with Minnesota last season. "As a player on a different team, you always look at Anaheim as being a beautiful place to live," Stoner said. "But at the same time, it's amazing what they've done as an organization. A lot of times, the warmer climates aren't big hockey meccas, and sometimes the teams aren't as good, but Anaheim goes completely against that."
