In less than two years, forward Derek Grant has been traded to the Anaheim Ducks and traded away from the Ducks. Now, he has signed with them as a free agent.

Grant, 30, has played for seven teams in his seven-year career. The Abbotsford, B.C., native first played for the Ducks as a free agent back in 2017, after signing as a free agent. He left for Pittsburgh the following year, only to be traded back to the Ducks in the ensuing season. Then at the 2019-20 trade deadline, the Ducks moved him to the Flyers.

In 56 games last season, Grant had 15 goals and 25 points while adding 30 penalty minutes.
