The Anaheim Ducks
on Tuesday re-signed left wing Bobby Ryan
to a five-year contract that runs through the 2014-15 season. The club did not reveal any financial terms, but TSN, citing sources, said the deal is worth $25.5 million.
"We're pleased to have come to an agreement with Bobby before training camp," Executive Vice President and General Manager Bob Murray
said in a statement. "Bobby is already a proven NHL goal scorer at the age of 23 and certainly has his best years ahead of him.”
The 23-year-old is coming off a career-high 35 goals and 64 points in 81 games in 2009-10, his second full season with the Ducks. The Cherry Hill, N.J., native ranked second in the NHL among U.S.-born players in goal scoring, trailing only New Jersey's Zach Parise
, who had 38, and was tied for 10th in the League in goals.
Ryan led all Ducks in goals, ranked third in both points and plus/minus (plus-9), and second in both power-play goals (11) and shots (258). He scored his 100th career NHL point with a game-winning goal on Dec. 29 vs. Minnesota in his 126th career game.
The 6-foot-2, 208-pounder won a silver medal with Team USA at the 2010 Olympic Winter Games in Vancouver. It was Ryan's first Olympic appearance and second career Team USA appearance. He had a goal, an assist and was plus-3 in six games in the Olympics. He scored the first goal of the tournament when he got the first goal for Team USA in a 3-1 win against Switzerland.
Selected by Anaheim with the No. 2 pick in the 2005 Entry Draft, Ryan was a finalist for the Calder Memorial Trophy as the NHL's top rookie following the 2008-09 season after scoring 31 goals and 57 points in 64 games in his first full season . Ryan established club rookie records in both goals and points, and matched Francois Beauchemin
's 2005-06 team mark for assists by a rookie.
In 168 career NHL games, Ryan has collected 71 goals and 131 points, along with 120 PIM and a plus-21 rating. He has also appeared in 15 Stanley Cup Playoff contests with Anaheim, scoring 5 goals and 7 points.
