Anaheim Ducks Player News: Centers

News: De Leo signed a one-year, two-way contract with Anaheim on Friday, CapFriendly reports.
Impact: De Leo played in just one NHL game last year, in which he recorded four shots, one hit and a minus-1 rating while logging 12:32 of ice time. While in the minors, the center notched 20 goals and 35 helpers in 66 appearances. With the Ducks looking to retool their lineup, De Leo could earn a spot on the 23-man roster for Opening Night versus Arizona on Oct. 3.
News: Martinsen signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ducks on Friday.
Impact: Martinsen's most recent NHL action came before he was waived by Chicago on January 4. The Norwegian saw ice time in 24 games for the Blackhawks and logged four points, but was a healthy scratch for four of five games before being waived. Martinsen also saw action in 38 regular-season games for AHL Rockford last season, logging three goals and eight assists.
News: De Leo filed for salary arbitration Friday.
Impact: De Leo appeared in 66 games in the minors last season, racking up 20 goals and 35 assists. The California native was extended a qualifying offer by Anaheim on June 26, but it appears he would like a different offer from the club. If both parties agree to a new salary, which is highly likely, De Leo could see an increased role with the parent club in 2019-20.
News: Poturalski signed a one-year, two-way contract with the Ducks on Tuesday.
Impact: Poturalski is a high-end AHL contributor, having taken home the Calder Cup Playoff MVP award last season. That said, he's never quite been able to stick in the NHL, with his only two appearances coming with Carolina back in the 2016-17 season. Poturalski will hope to make the big club in camp.
News: Carrick signed a one-year contract extension worth $700,000 by the Ducks on Thursday, CapFriendly.com reports.
Impact: Carrick spent much of last season in the minor leagues, only appearing in six games for Anaheim. He'll look to work his way up to a low-line role with the Ducks in the coming campaign.
News: The Lightning didn't send Hults a qualifying offer Tuesday.
Impact: Hults, who spent the bulk of the 2018-19 campaign with ECHL Orlando, will be looking to land a two-way deal with a new club once he becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
News: De Leo was given a qualifying offer by the Ducks on Tuesday.
Impact: De Leo was highly impressive in the minors last season, racking up 20 goals and 55 points in 66 games, and should be in prime position to earn a regular role with the big club this campaign.
