Ducks Ink Star Pair to Max Deals1:52 PM
Summer 2013's pool of NHL free agents recently got much shallower as the Anaheim Ducks locked up their two highly coveted stars in recent weeks to 8 year max term deals. NHL Network broke the news last night that Corey Perry had signed an 8 year extension worth $69 million less than 2 weeks after the club announced the signing of captain Ryan Getzlaf to an extension of the same term and $66 million respectively. The both carry cap hits of over 8 million. In addition to remaining the cornerstones of the Orange County club they helped capture the 2007 Stanley Cup, both players maximize their compensation going forward by re-upping with their current club with the 8 year term, a stipulation under the new CBA.
The Ducks currently sit second in the west with a record of 21-3-4 and have lost only 3 games in the month of March.
