Anaheim Ducks sign LW Patrick Maroon to 3-year extension, sign 1st-round pick Nick Ritchie

ANAHEIM, Calif. - The Anaheim Ducks have signed Patrick Maroon to a three-year contract extension after the left wing's breakout season.

The Ducks also signed first-round pick Nick Ritchie on Saturday.

Maroon is signed through 2018. The physical forward scored 29 points in 62 games with the Ducks last season, his first full NHL season.

The 26-year-old Maroon added seven points and 38 penalty minutes in the post-season. His six-game post-season scoring streak was the NHL's longest by a rookie since Los Angeles' Warren Rychel in 1993.

The Ducks acquired Maroon from Philadelphia along with David Laliberte in 2010 in a trade for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson. The Flyers abruptly dismissed Maroon from their AHL affiliate before the trade.

Anaheim selected Ritchie with the 10th overall pick in June.

Quote of the Day

I feel that responsibility, I've felt it for the last two years. We core guys get a lot of minutes, we get a lot of opportunity out there. Our teammates, the organization and fans look to us to be the guys to put the puck in the net and to create momentum out there.
