Ducks sign young D Luca Sbisa to 4-year extension @NHLdotcom

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) - The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Luca Sbisa to a four-year contract extension worth $8.7 million.

The Ducks announced the deal Tuesday for Sbisa, the 21-year-old Swiss defenseman who made a quantum leap forward in his development over the past several months.

Sbisa says he's thrilled to stay in Anaheim through the 2014-15 season.

Anaheim acquired Sbisa from Philadelphia in a deal for former MVP Chris Pronger in 2009, but Sbisa didn't develop into a full-time NHL player until this winter.

Sbisa has two goals and six assists in 52 games for the Ducks, averaging nearly 16 1/2 minutes per game. He's among the Ducks' most physical defensemen, ranking second on the club with 131 hits.
