Ducks announce the signing of defenceman Korbinian Holzer to a one year contract
Anaheim re-signs Korbinian Holzer to a one year deal for a reported amount of $700,00.00. Holzer assisted on 3 goals and had 10 penalty minutes in 29 games with Ducks after being brought over from Toronto at the deadline last season, in exchange for Eric Brewer and a fifth round draft pick in the 2016 draft. Holzer was part of the playoff roster but did not see the ice during the series against Nashville.

Picked 111th at the 2006 Draft by Toronto, Holzer has spent the majority of his career in Gemany and the AHL having played a total of 87 at the NHL level.
He was brought to Anaheim as a big body with solid hockey IQ that could help anchor the defensive bench.
Holzer put up respectable minutes, averaging just under 15 a game and a +/- of -3. He will be a solid addition to the blue line. According to the O.C. Register’s Eric Stephens Holzer’s contract is a one way deal, so no time is San Diego next season with out having to clear the waiver wire.
One can only assume that Ducks fans should get used to seeing a lot more of Korbinian Holzer on the ice next season.
