The Anaheim Ducks signed young defenseman Cam Fowler to a five-year contract extension, the club announced Saturday.

Helene Elliott of the Los Angeles Times reported Fowler's deal, which will begin starting with the 2013-14 season, is worth $4 million per season. Fowler had 10 goals and 40 points in his rookie season, but his production slipped to five tallies and 29 points during his sophomore campaign in 2011-12.

The 12th pick in the 2010 NHL Draft, Fowler would have been a restricted free agent after the 2012-13 season, and this deal buys out one year of unrestricted free agency under the current Collective Bargaining Agreement.

For me, it's a great win for our hockey team and for a lot of people back in Columbus, especially our fans in particular … people who have been devoted to this organization, it's big.
