Ducks Agree to Terms with Corey Perry on Eight-Year Contract Extension
The Ducks have agreed to terms with right wing Corey Perry on an eight-year contract extension. Perry, a 2007 Stanley Cup champion and 2010 Olympic gold medalist, is now under contract with the Ducks through the 2020-21 NHL season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.

“We are excited that Corey has committed to us for the next eight years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “Similar to the case with Ryan Getzlaf, Corey wanted to stay in Anaheim and be part of our organization long term. He is an exceptional player who competes with heart and soul and has won at every level.”

Perry, 27 (5/16/85), has appeared in 25 games for the Ducks this season, collecting 9-15=24 points with a +14 rating and 41 penalty minutes (PIM). Perry ranks second among team leaders in scoring and assists, third in goals and tied for fourth in plus/minus. Among NHL leaders, Perry is tied for second in game-winning goals (5) and tied for 12th in power-play goals (5). The three-time NHL All-Star (2008, 2011 & 2012) has scored 96 goals since the start of the 2010-11 season, second only to Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos (126).

“Staying in Anaheim has always been my first choice,” said Perry. “This is a great place to play, and I’m very grateful to have the opportunity to remain here. I want to thank to the Samuelis and the entire Ducks organization for their belief in me. I’m pleased to have this done so our focus can remain on our ultimate goal – bringing another Stanley Cup to Orange County.”

On June 22, 2011, Perry was named the first player from a Southern California team to win the Hart Memorial Trophy since Hall-of-Famer Wayne Gretzky earned the honor with Los Angeles in 1989. The 6-3, 210-pound winger also became just the third player from a California team to win the Hart, joining Gretzky and San Jose’s Joe Thornton (2006). Perry led the NHL in goal scoring in 2010-11 with 50, winning the Maurice “Rocket” Richard Trophy as the league’s top goal scorer. He co-led the NHL with 11 game-winning goals while also leading in third-period tallies (21) and road goals (28). Perry became the third player in franchise history to reach the 50-goal mark and the first in the Western Conference to score 50-or-more since Calgary’s Jarome Iginla in 2007-08 (50).

Selected by Anaheim in the first round (28th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft, Perry has appeared in eight NHL seasons, scoring 214-239=453 points with a +51 rating and 705 PIM in 555 career games with the Ducks. Perry won his first Stanley Cup with Anaheim in 2007, scoring 6-9=15 points in 21 contests. Among all-time franchise leaders, Perry ranks fourth in scoring, third in goals, game-winning goals (41) and power-play goals (68), and fifth in assists. In 2010, Perry won gold with Team Canada in his first career Olympic appearance at the Winter Games in Vancouver, collecting 4-1=5 points in seven contests. He also has won a World Junior championship with Team Canada in 2005 and was a member of the London Knights’ (OHL) 2005 Memorial Cup-winning team.

Perry talks with media about the signing:
"There are a lot of factors. How the team is playing right now and with Getzy signed. That’s a huge positive. You look around the room and there’s a lot of guys in that dressing room that are going to be here for a long time. I think we got the team that can definitely contend every year.

"This is where I wanted to be. You look around that dressing room and there are a lot of great guys in that room. Great hockey players. It’s going to be a great team for a long time.

"This is where I wanted to be. This is where I want to finish my career. I’ve made a home here. Being out here, this is a great organization with the Samuelis and right on through the organization. It’s definitely a class act for everybody involved.

"With [Getzlaf] staying here and knowing that I’d get to play with him pretty much for the rest of our career, it definitely added some pride to stay here and continue my career."


Other Ducks comment on the signing:
Bruce Boudreau

“It’s more for the organization and for the fans. It lets them know how committed Henry and Susan [Samueli] and Bob Murray and the organization is to producing a winner and continue producing a winner here. It’s a lot of money for two players, but they’re two great players that have grown up in this organization. We’re really happy that we’ve got them for as long as I’m going to be around, anyways.”

Ryan Getzlaf
“That’s a big step in the right direction for this organization. Me and Pears have had some conversations over the last week. The free agency thing is a route some guys like to go, but we’re in a pretty good situation here with a great ownership group. We both showed that now. I had less [doubt] than anybody else. We’ve had a lot of conversations and stuff about the direction of the team, and everything is heading in the right direction. They’ve shown us everything from day one on a winning organization and it showed in our commitment back to them.”
