ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed high-scoring forward Steven Whitney to a two-year, entry-level contract.

The Ducks announced the deal Thursday with Whitney, who spent the past four seasons at Boston College.

Whitney was one of the nation's best available undrafted free agents after scoring 45 points in 38 games for the Eagles this season, ranking second in the nation with 26 goals. He won the Walter Brown Award as the best American-born college hockey player in New England.
