LOS ANGELES - The Anaheim Ducks signed right-wing Mike Brown to a two-year contract extension on Monday, allowing the team to keep a reliable penalty killer.

Terms were not disclosed. The 23-year-old Brown was acquired at this year's trade deadline from Vancouver. His toughness was something the Ducks were looking for after they traded Brad May to the Toronto Maple Leafs in January.

It worked, but Anaheim was eliminated by the Detroit Red Wings in seven games in the Western Conference semifinals.

Brown landed a blow to Jiri Hudler's head in the first period of Game 1 in the series against the Wings. He was not suspended for the hit.

Brown appeared in 28 games for the Ducks, scoring two goals with one assist. He added two assists in the playoffs.
