ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks announced today that the National Hockey League (NHL) club has signed defenseman Cam Fowler to a five-year contract extension through the 2017-18 NHL season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.
We're excited to sign Cam to a long-term contract,” said Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “He's a character kid with a great chance to become an elite NHL defenseman.”
Fowler, 20 (12/5/91), scored 5-24=29 points with 18 penalty minutes with the Ducks last season. He was one of six Anaheim players to appear in all 82 regular season games, marking a career high. Fowler led Anaheim defensemen in assists and points, while ranking second overall on the team in time-on-ice (TOI; 23:15). Among NHL leaders, Fowler finished the year tied for fifth in TOI per shift (57 seconds). He appeared in his 100th career NHL game on Nov. 30, 2011 vs. Montreal.
