The Anaheim Ducks are close to signing free agent defenseman John Klingberg, multiple outlets reported Friday.

The deal is said to be for one season and about $7 million.

Klingberg, who turns 30 next month, had 47 points (six goals, 41 assists) in 74 games with Dallas in 2021-22.

He had 374 points (71 goals, 303 assists) and 213 penalty minutes in 552 games over eight seasons with the Stars.

Dallas drafted Klingberg in the fifth round in 2010, and he made the All-Star team in 2018.
