This year the Anaheim Ducks added a lot of new players to their already talented roster. They’ve packed their blue line with strong defensemen like Hampus Linholm and Stephane Robidas, but one of the best hitters on that line is Mark Fistric.
Fistric was an acquisition for the Ducks in August of last year. He was signed to a 1-year, $900,000 contract as a free agent.
It is unclear if he will return to Anaheim for the 2014-15 season, but assuming he does the blue line will be better with him.
Fistric brings an aggressiveness to the defense that has been to the advantage of the team. He and Robidas led in hits for the defensive lines although he suffered injuries that caused him to miss a large amount of games towards the end of the season, it was due to his efforts we were able to get so far.
