The Anaheim Ducks signed defenseman Kodie Curran to a two-year contract, the league announced Monday.

Curran's deal carries an average annual value of $1 million, according to CapFriendly.

The 30-year-old was named MVP and Defenseman of the Year in the Swedish Hockey League this past season. He led all blue-liners with 12 goals and 37 assists in 48 games. His 49 points were the second most in the league.

Curran hasn't played in North America since the 2015-16 season. After spending five campaigns at the University of Calgary, he split one year between the ECHL and AHL. He then spent one season in Norway, one in Denmark, and the last two in Sweden.
