Anaheim Signs Paul Mara

ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed defenseman Paul Mara to a one-year contract. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

Mara, 31 (9/7/79), appeared in 42 games for the Montreal Canadiens last season, collecting 0-8=8 points with 48 penalty minutes (PIM). He suffered a shoulder injury on Jan. 22 at New Jersey and subsequently missed the final 30 games of the regular season. In 2008-09 with the New York Rangers, Mara recorded 5-16=21 points in 76 contests, ranking fourth among club defensemen in points. He appeared in his 600th career NHL contest on Dec. 23, 2008 vs. the Washington Capitals.

Ducks defenseman Toni Lydman experienced an acute episode of double vision last week. Lydman has since undergone a battery of tests, which have ruled out most major medical concerns but have not identified the cause of the problem. Lydman is still experiencing some slight residual symptoms and will not be able to train/skate until the problem is diagnosed and his series of medical tests are complete. 

“Our top priority is Toni’s health,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Toni is feeling much better this week and we are encouraged by the results of his recent tests. However, we will proceed with caution until we can identify the source of the problem.”
