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.

Quote of the Day

He seemed to thrive on his own and didn't really need any push from me. I certainly don't want to get in the way of the coaches. You see how that goes sometimes. I never really worried about it and just enjoyed the ride.
