Palmieri Re-Signed; Invited to Olympic Camp

Kyle Palmieri has been re-signed by the Anaheim Ducks to a three-year contract worth $4.4 million.

The 22 year old right winger played in 42 games last season and scored 10 goals and 21 points.  Six of those goals were game winners, which placed him in sixth place overall in the NHL.  Palmieri aims to be a permanent fixture in the Ducks line up in the coming season.   

Palmieri was one of three Ducks invited to attend the U.S. Men’s National Team Orientation Camp for the Olympics.   Defenseman Cam Fowler and goaltender John Gibson are the other two Americans invited for the late August camp.

The American born players were not the only ones invited to camps.  Team Canada has invited Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry to their camp.  Finland invited Saku Koivu, Teemu Selanne and Sami Vatanen.  The Swedes are looking to Viktor Fasth and the Swiss have asked Jonas Hiller.  

If Selanne plays in the Olympics it will be the sixth Olympics for the 43 year old.  Selanne still has not decided if he will play yet another season with the Ducks.
