Shawn Weller never saw time in an Anaheim Ducks uniform, but he played an important role in the organization last season.
The 24-year-old left wing, who had spent most of his first two pro seasons with the Ottawa Senators’ AHL team, accepted an assignment to the ECHL to begin last season, when the Ducks didn’t have their own AHL affiliate. Weller also took on the role of team captain with the Bakersfield Condors, scoring 18 goals and 46 points in 42 games.
On Monday, the Manitoba Moose announced they signed Weller to an AHL contract. The Ducks originally acquired the left wing from the Ottawa Senators in exchange for Jason Bailey, their third-round pick in 2005. He finished last season in the AHL with the Abbotsford Heat.
Players on AHL contracts are eligible to play for any NHL team.
