Ducks sign D-man Fistric to three-year extension
Mark Fistric, who has one goal, four assists and 18 penalty minutes in 27 games with the Anaheim Ducks this season, signed a three-year contract extension Wednesday.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Mark Fistric to a three-year contract extension, the team announced Wednesday.

Fistric, 27, has one goal, four assists and 18 penalty minutes in 27 games this season. He is a plus-8, and despite playing in 27 of 55 games, Fistric is second on the team in hits with 123.

Anaheim signed Fistric as a free agent on Aug. 20, 2013. The 6-foot-2, 230-pound defenseman also has played for the Dallas Stars and Edmonton Oilers; he has 34 points and a plus-30 rating in 309 career games.

The Ducks did not disclose financial terms of the contract extension.

Fistric was selected by the Stars in the first round (No. 28) at the 2004 NHL Draft.

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
