Per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Vatanen (5-foot-10, 183-pounds) scored 21 points in 48 games with the Ducks last season. He also picked up his first career postseason assist in five games with Anaheim during their Stanley Cup playoff run.

Vatanen, a native of Jyvaskyla, Finland, tied for fifth in goals and sixth in plus/minus among rookie NHL defensemen last season.

He also won a bronze medal in his first Olympic Winter Games earlier this year in Sochi, Russia.
