Eight more years!   Ten days after signing captain Ryan Getzlaf to a contract extension,  Corey Perry signed one, too. Perry signed a $69 million deal that also has a no movement clause, just like Getzlaf.  Perry, 27, already has a Stanley Cup, an Olympic gold medal, and a Memorial Cup.  He has won the Hart Trophy for NHL MVP and the Rocket Richard Trophy as well. Now he knows he will be wearing an Anaheim jersey through the 2020-2021 season. “We are excited that Corey has committed to us for the next eight years,” said Ducks GM 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.” Getzlaf and Perry have been seemingly joined at the hip since being drafted by Anaheim in 2003.  Getzlaf was drafted 19th, Perry at 28th.  Getzlaf signs first, Perry signs second. “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.” Seeing as Perry has been serving a four game suspension, he has managed to make his time off productive.   Perry has one more game to serve before he can get back on the ice against Detroit on Friday evening. During the second intermission of the game between the Sharks and Ducks, about an hour after his contract extension was announced, Perry alluded to the fact that Getzlaf wanted him to stay in Anaheim and that helped in his decision making process.   Perry and Getzlaf have been a formidable one-two punch since they entered the league.   Perry now has 555 career games with Anaheim, scoring 214 goals and 453 points with a +51 rating and 705 PIM.   Those totals are only going to go up.
