Captain, oh captain!  Ryan Getzlaf has signed an eight-year contract extension that will see him in an Anaheim jersey through the 2020-2021 season  The $66 million contract breaks down to $6.5M next year then $8.75M, $9.25M, $9.25M, $9.025M, $8.95M, $8.275M and $6M. “We are very happy to have Ryan committed to this franchise long-term,” said 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.” Ducks fans are equally happy and breathing a partial sigh of relief.  No one wanted to see Getzlaf test free agency at the end of the year, or worse, be traded before the deadline.  Getzlaf, 27, was a first round draft pick by the Ducks in 2003 and has appeared in 534 career NHL games with the Ducks, scoring 146-353=499 points with a +77 rating and 504 penalty minutes (PIM).  He was named the eighth captain...

Steve Palumbo: Are Corey Perry's Days as a Duck Numbered?

Anaheim Continues Calgary Dominance at Home

Anaheim hates going to Detroit.  Joe Louis has been very unkind to them over the years and the Ducks have a mere four wins in the building in 20 years.   Calgary can feel Anaheim's pain, because a visit to the Honda Center has yielded absolutely nothing in return for the past 16 games in a row.  The Flames last win in Anaheim?  January 19, 2004.  The latest victory to...

About Last Night…Jonas is King of the Hiller

Jonas Hiller turned aside all 18 Phoenix shots and Ryan Getzlaf posted an empty-net goal and an assist as the Anaheim Ducks blanked the Phoenix Coyotes 2-0. Corey Perry had the Ducks’ other goal. SPIN: Perhaps Hiller’s demise was a little exaggerated. He rode the Ducks’ coattails at the start of the season but got replaced by Victor Fasth between the pipes. Hiller was able...

Ducks Shut Out Coyotes 2-0

It only took three times (and a change of venue!) but the Ducks finally defeated the Coyotes.  After two consecutive 5-4 shootout losses in Phoenix, the miniseries came to Anaheim where everything changed. The Ducks and Jonas Hiller were able to procure a 2-0 shutout on Wednesday night.  In a case of very strange fuzzy math, the Ducks and Coyotes split the three game series...

Flames-Ducks Preview

After facing the same team for three straight games, the Anaheim Ducks should be eager for the chance to extend their home winning streak against a different opponent Friday night.

Anaheim (16-3-3...

Colin Dambrauskas: Flames Held Goalless Against Ducks....Take on the LA Kings

Follow me on Twitter!: @ColinDJD As expected by most, the Calgary Flames lost to the hot Anaheim Ducks last night in a 4 zip match. The Flames managed to outshout the Ducks in the first period 12-4 and stay right with them in that department for the two remaining periods, though their chances were just not enough. Despite playing a strong statistical game, the Anaheim Ducks...
