ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) The Anaheim Ducks signed holdout Hampus Lindholm to a six-year, $31.5 million contract through the 2021-22 season on Thursday, ending a stalemate with their talented Swedish defenseman.

The 22-year-old Lindholm scored 92 points in 236 games over the past three seasons, developing into one of the NHL's top young blueliners with a fluid two-way game. The Swede missed training camp and the first eight regular-season games this fall while holding out.

"I'm really happy to be back in Anaheim," Lindholm said in a phone interview from Sweden. "That's where I've been all my career. This is the only time when we had time to sign me, and we could still keep some players. It was kind of perfect that way to keep the team that we had last year."
