Signed as a free agent on Apr. 7, 2009, Sexton made his NHL debut with Anaheim in 2009-10. He collected 9-10=19 points with 16 PIM in 41 games last season, leading all Ducks rookies in assists and points. Among NHL rookies, his points-per-game average (.46) was tied for 10th while his 6-5=11 points in the month of December ranked second. The 5-10, 174-pound winger has appeared in 58 career NHL games with Anaheim, earning 11-12=23 points with 18 PIM.
