The Anaheim Ducks have signed forward Nicolas Deslauriers to a two-year contract extension, the team announced Saturday.

Deslauriers has posted two goals and seven points in 45 games with the Ducks this season, with a career-high 80 penalty minutes. The 28-year-old currently leads Anaheim in PIM and ranks second in hits with 108.

The left wing was acquired from the Montreal Canadiens for a fourth-round selection in the 2020 NHL Draft on June 30, 2019.

In 362 career NHL games, Deslauriers has recorded 26 goals and 56 points with 343 penalty minutes for Anaheim, Montreal and the Buffalo Sabres. His five assists this season are the most Deslauriers has totalled since the 2015-16 season, and only five shy of his career-best 10 assists in 2014-15.

The LaSalle, Que., native was selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the third round of the 2009 NHL Draft, 84th overall.
