NAHEIM, California (Ticker) - Chris Kunitz apparently made a strong impression on the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks on Thursday re-signed the promising left wing to a two-year contract. Financial terms were not disclosed.

unitz, who was scheduled to have an arbitration hearing on August 3, collected 19 goals and 41 points in 67 games for Anaheim in 2005-06 - his first full season in the NHL. The Saskatchewan native set club rookie records for goals, points, shots (149) and plus-minus rating (16).

The 26-year-old Kunitz was claimed off waivers by Atlanta on October 4 - one day before Opening Night - and notched two penalty minutes in two games with the Thrashers before being reclaimed by the Ducks 14 days later. He emerged as a major scoring threat in the postseason, collecting three tallies and five assists in 16 contests.

A Hobey Baker Award finalist for Ferris State in 2003, Kunitz has 19 goals and 28 assists in 90 career games with the Ducks and Thrashers.
