Ducks seek scoring help, sign LW Kyle Calder after training camp tryout

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Left-winger Kyle Calder has signed a one-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks, who released him late in training camp.

Calder was assigned to the Ducks' minor-league affiliate in Bakersfield.

The nine-year NHL veteran attended Anaheim's training camp on a tryout basis, but was released after going scoreless in four exhibition games.

Calder scored 27 points for Los Angeles last season.

He spent his last two seasons with the Kings after starting his career with the Chicago Blackhawks, followed by short stints with Philadelphia and Detroit.

The last-place Ducks are searching for scoring help after managing just 25 goals during their 3-6-1 start.
