Mike Santorelli will be playing for his sixth different NHL team come this fall, as the unrestricted free agent forward has signed a contract with the Anaheim Ducks.

The 29-year-old centre's deal is reportedly worth $875,000 US over one year. 

Santorelli spent parts of the 2014-2015 season with the Toronto Maple Leafs and Nashville Predators. He contributed 33 points in 79 games. 

Santorelli, who was drafted in the sixth round by the Predators in 2004, has also spent time with the Panthers, Jets and Canucks. He has 120 points in 336 career NHL games, including 55 goals.

The Vancouver native was traded by the Leafs to the Predators during the 2014-2015 season in a deal which sent Cody Franson and Santorelli to Nashville in exchange for a 2015 first-round pick, Olli Jokinen, and Brendan Leipsic.
