Ducks extend Guenin for two years.

The Ducks have extended the contract of minor-league defenseman Nate Guenin for two years. Guenin will make $525,000 in the NHL and $175,000 in the AHL.

Although he never played a game in a Ducks uniform last season, Guenin played heavy minutes for the Syracuse Crunch after arriving in a January trade with the Columbus Blue Jackets. The 28-year-old had two goals and 12 points in 43 games for the Crunch, along with 44 penalty minutes and a minus-2 rating. He was among the “Black Aces” that were recalled from Syracuse for the Ducks’ first-round series against Nashville but did not play.

Guenin has two assists, eight penalty minutes and a minus-3 in 17 career NHL games with the Blue Jackets, Penguins and Flyers.
