Ducks Reportedly Sign Free Agent

Free-agent wing Peter Douris, who spent the 1992-93 season in the Boston Bruin organization, reportedly has signed a three-year contract with the Mighty Ducks.

Douris played 19 games in the NHL last season, getting four goals and four assists.

The Ducks wouldn't confirm Douris' signing, but sources said the team will be making a player announcement today. The Sporting News reports Douris is getting a three-year contract worth $325,000, $350,000 and $350,000--figures that surprised Bruin General Manager Harry Sinden.

"Too many players are hitting the lottery," Sinden told the publication.

Douris was a second-round draft pick by Winnipeg in 1984 and spent 1985-88 with the Jets. He was traded to the St. Louis Blues in 1988 and then was signed as a free agent by the Bruins in 1989.

Most of his NHL experience came in 1990-91, when he played in 39 games for the Bruins, scoring five goals with two assists. But he played mostly with the Providence Bruins in the American Hockey League, where he scored 29 goals and added 26 assists in 50 games.

He spent most of the 1991-92 season with the U.S. Olympic team.
