Ducks sign D Mark Fistric to new 3-year contract after impressive debut season in Anaheim

ANAHEIM, Calif. - Defenceman Mark Fistric has agreed to a three-year, $3.8 million contract extension with the Anaheim Ducks.

The Ducks announced the deal Wednesday with Fistric, who has become a regular on the blue line in his first season with the overall NHL leaders.

Fistric has five points and a plus-8 rating in 27 games with the Ducks, who signed him as a free agent in August. The hard-hitting defenceman is second on the Ducks with 123 hits despite playing in only about half of their games this season.

The former first-round pick didn't crack Anaheim's lineup until mid-November when defenceman Luca Sbisa injured his right hand.

Fistric also has played for Dallas and Edmonton during his NHL career. He scored six points for the Oilers last season.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
