Troy Terry signed a three-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old forward could have become a restricted free agent after this season.
"Obviously the contract was on my mind," Terry told SiriusXM NHL Network Radio on Wednesday. "… It's nice to just have it done and focus on my training, and know that I've got another three years in Anaheim. So I'm really excited."
Terry scored 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) in 47 games before the NHL season was paused March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. Terry missed six weeks after breaking a bone below his kneecap in a 4-1 loss at the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 17.
Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (No. 148) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Terry has 28 points (eight goals, 20 assists) in 81 NHL games.
The Ducks (29-33-9, .472 points percentage) finished 13th in the Western Conference and are not among the 24 teams competing for the Stanley Cup under the NHL Return to Play Plan.
