TheFourthPeriod.com

The Anaheim Ducks have signed center Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year, $66 million contract extension.

The 2007 Stanley Cup champion and 2010 Olympic gold medalist is now under contract with the Ducks through the 2020-21 NHL season.

"We are very happy to have Ryan committed to this franchise long-term," said Ducks GM Bob Murray. "He has often expressed his interest to stay in Anaheim for his entire career, a goal we share. He is a leader, a proven winner, and possesses a skill set that's hard to find. This is a great day for the Ducks."

Getzlaf, 27, has appeared in 534 career NHL games with the Ducks, registering 146 goals and 353 assists for 499 points with a +77 rating and 504 penalty minutes.

"I'm extremely thankful to the Samuelis, Michael Schulman, Bob Murray and the entire Ducks organization for the opportunity to remain in Anaheim for the long-term," said Getzlaf. "This is a wonderful day for my family, as Anaheim has become our home. The fans here have treated me very well, and I look forward to being part of a winning hockey team and contributing to the Orange County community for years to come."

Named the eighth captain in Ducks history on Oct. 3, 2010, Getzlaf ranks third among all-time franchise leaders in points and assists, fifth in goals and powerplay goals (55), fourth in game-winning goals (25), second in plus/minus and sixth in appearances.

Getzlaf, a native of Regina, Saskatchewan, was selected in the first round (19th overall) of the 2003 NHL Entry Draft.
