The Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed defensemen Christian Djoos and Jani Hakanpaa to one-year contracts.

The Ducks announced the deals Wednesday. Djoos will make $1 million next season, and Hakanpaa gets $750,000.

Djoos had one goal and two assists in nine games with the Ducks after they acquired him from the Washington Capitals on Feb. 24 in a trade for forward Daniel Sprong.

Djoos is a former seventh-round draft pick who played a steady role during the Capitals' run to the Stanley Cup title as a rookie in the 2017-18 season. He scored 14 points in 63 games as a rookie before appearing in 22 playoff games on the way to the Cup.

He didn't make the Caps' roster out of training camp this season, and he appeared in just two games with Washington before being traded.

Hakanpaa had one goal in five games for Anaheim this season after making his NHL debut March 4. The 28-year-old defenseman was drafted by St. Louis in 2010, but didn't progress beyond the AHL before spending the past four seasons in his native Finland's top league.
