The Anaheim Ducks have tied up a one-year deal for Dustin Penner, according to ESPN.

The 30-year-old left-winger is heading back to the club that first signed him as a free agent in 2004, in a deal worth $2 million.

This would be a wage drop for Penner after earning an extra $1.25 million a year during his spell at the Kings.

Penner had spent the past three seasons at Los Angeles Kings, and in the 33 regular-season games he played in last season he contributed two goals, 12 assists and 18 penalty minutes.

In addition to this he also played in 18 play-off games for the Kings - winning his second Stanley Cup with them last year.

Penner won his first NHL championship in 2007 at the end of a three-year stint with the Ducks. He played in a total of 101 games for them after joining the club in 2005.

The experienced left-winger has 137 goals and 138 assists in 522 career NHL games to date.
