Veteran forward Tim Jackman's toughness and effectiveness on the Ducks' fourth line was awarded Thursday as the team signed him to a one-year contract extension.

Jackman will earn $700,000 in 2015-16, according to a hockey official familiar with the deal but unauthorized to speak publicly on the matter.

The 6-foot-2, 225-pound Jackman tops the Pacific Division-leading Ducks with 84 penalty minutes, ranking 11th in the NHL. He's also produced five goals and seven points playing alongside center Nate Thompson on Anaheim's checking line.

Now in his 12th season, Jackman, 33, was acquired from the Calgary Flames last season. The Ducks resume play at Calgary Friday night.
