Kyle Cumiskey now has a contract with the Ducks after an arbitrator awarded him a one-year deal that will pay him $744,000 when he’s in the NHL and $105,000 in the American Hockey League.

But the 25-year-old defenseman is already signed to play for Modo in the Swedish Elite League and it seems that he no longer wants to have any ties to the Ducks at all.

The Ducks elected to take Cumiskey to arbitration in order to retain his rights after their qualifying offer to the puck-moving rearguard wasn’t accepted but Cumiskey is challenging whether the club had the ability to do so.
