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

We want to make sure that whoever makes our team really makes our team by earning it and not putting them in situations where they get preference because of their status as a first-round pick or whatever it might be. That's not going to happen. Everybody has to earn their way on our team.

— Columbus Blue Jackets general manager Jarmo Kekalainen on the team's prospects at development camp
