Matt Beleskey will be with the Anaheim Ducks for at least two more years. 

The Ducks re-signed Beleskey to a two-year deal reportedly worth $2.7 million per the NHL's official website via Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times. Beleskey couldn't be more excited. 

"I'm really excited. Being back with the Ducks for another two years was exactly what I wanted to do, and I'm just looking forward to being in Anaheim for the next few years. I didn't really want to go anywhere else, and it worked out the best way possible." 

Beleskey also believes the Ducks' lineup is solid enough to be competitive once again in the 2013-14 NHL season. 

"Starting from our goalies all the way to our top centerman in Getzky (Ryan Getzlaf), it's a good group of guys who work hard. We know what's possible from last season, and that's something we can definitely build on. I'm really looking forward to next season."

The 25-year-old native of Windsor, Ontario chipped in with eight goals, five assists and 56 penalty minutes in 42 games with the Ducks in the 2012-13 NHL season. He also led Anaheim with 103 hits. 

On top of these, Beleskey also scored the first two power-play goals of his career last season.
