The Ducks announced today that they have signed right wing George Parros to a three-year contract extension. The new contract will keep Parros with Anaheim through the end of the 2011-12 season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

“We are pleased to announce that George has signed for three more seasons,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “His character and toughness on the ice along with his commitment to our community have been valuable assets for the organization.”

In 45 games with the Ducks this year, Parros, 29 (12/29/79), has earned 3-5=8 points with 74 penalty minutes (PIM). He has already established career highs in goals, assists and points, besting his previous marks just three months into the 2008-09 campaign. His plus-9 rating on the season ranks third on the club as he’s registered a plus-or-even rating in 42 of his 45 appearances. The Randolph, New Jersey native appeared in his 200th NHL game on Jan. 16 at Pittsburgh.

Parros Highlights

A member of the Ducks 2007 Stanley Cup championship squad, the 6-5, 231-pound Parros has appeared in six career postseason contests. In 146 career regular season games with Anaheim, he has earned 5-9=14 points with 359 PIM.  Parros was acquired from Colorado with future considerations in exchange for a second-round draft pick in the 2007 Entry Draft on Nov. 13, 2007. He was originally drafted by the Los Angeles Kings in the eighth round (222nd overall) of the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. In 203 career NHL games, Parros has collected 7-12=19 points with 497 PIM and a plus-10 rating.

Following an optional team practice at Anaheim ICE on Thursday, Parros said the following when briefly talking with reporters regarding his new deal with the Ducks.

"It feels great. I’m really happy that they were interested in talking early. This is where I wanted to play and that is why we got a deal done before the deadline. I think we’re both thrilled."

"I love it here. I love the fans and the organization. The longer the deal, the better for me. Three years seemed right for me and they had no problem working something out. I’m very happy with the ways things went."

"Peace of mind is very helpful. Now, I can go concentrate. Not that I wasn’t before, but it’s obviously nice to not have to worry and bite your nails all season. I wouldn’t have done it if this isn’t where I wanted to be. It was my first choice and I’m happy to do it now."

"I’m definitely happy the team wanted to come to me and figure something out right away because they have a lot of other decisions to make too. I’m glad they got me off their checklist and we’ll go forward from here."
