The Ducks can add another Finn to their traveling contingency when they open the 2011-12 season in Helsinki.
According to capgeek.com, the Ducks signed 25-year-old goalie Iiro Tarkki to a one-year, two-way contract that will pay $900,000 plus bonuses in the NHL and $67,500 in the AHL.
Tarkki has spent parts of the last six seasons in the SM-Liiga, the top league in Finland. His 2.09 goals-against average last season ranked sixth in the league and his .924 save percentage ranked seventh.
We’ll try to get confirmation of the deal tonight.
