Anaheim Ducks sign Boston College star Steven Whitney to 2-year entry-level deal

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.

Boston College won two NCAA titles and all four Beanpot tournaments during Whitney's career. The Massachusetts native scored 128 points in 160 career games.

Whitney is likely to start his pro career with the Ducks' AHL affiliate in Norfolk.
