By ESPN.com staff

Anaheim Ducks defenseman Cam Fowler signed with the Swedish club Sodertalje, his agent Pat Brisson told ESPN.com’s Pierre LeBrun.

Fowler, 20, signed a five-year, $20 million contract extension with the Ducks on the eve of the lockout.

Drafted 12th overall in 2010, Fowler had a 40-point rookie season and a 29-point season in 2011-12, while playing a major role for Anaheim.

Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nicklas Grossmann also will be joining Sodertalje, according to the team’s website.

Grossmann signed a four-year extension worth $3.5 million in April after being traded to Philadelphia from Dallas in February.

Fowler and Grossmann will be playing with the Flyers’ Matt Read and the Rangers’ Carl Hagelin.
