Ducks re-sign Silfverberg for 4 years, $15 million

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) Right wing Jakob Silfverberg has agreed to a four-year, $15 million contract through the 2018-19 season.

The Ducks announced the deal Friday with Silfverberg, a restricted free agent.

Silfverberg set career highs with 13 goals and 26 assists last season, playing frequently on the second line for the Pacific Division champion Ducks. He broke out in the postseason with four goals and 14 assists in just 16 games as Anaheim fell one victory short of the Stanley Cup final.

Silfverberg has 81 points in 181 career games with Anaheim and the Ottawa Senators, who traded him to the Ducks in a package for Bobby Ryan in July 2013. Silfverberg also led the NHL with nine shootout goals.

Silfverberg played for Sweden at the Sochi Olympics, winning a silver medal.
