Ducks Sign Corey Perry to Eight-Year Contract Extension

ANAHEIM, Calif. – 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.

“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.

I was reading on a Rangers Blog the other day about trying to acquire him and I thought yeah right-fat chance!
The Ducks only issue is gonna be a top heavy Salary Cap for years! With Perry, Getzlaf, and Ryan, that is around 22 million and Cam Fowler is making 4 million plus the goalies make around 7.5 million.
6 players make around 34 million of the 64 million next year!
Great draft pick at number 28 by the Ducks of Perry.

Good deal for Perry. So the Ducks are banking on the cap going up?

The Cap is coming down from 70.2 million to 64.3 million according to GapGeek next year!

Props to the Ducks for keeping both. Hate to admit I really thought he was on the way out of the division and was prepping celebration. The team's play so far this year sure didn't hurt either of their causes!

Great news for us (few...) Ducks fans. I thought that there was at least an 80%+ chance of this outcome but I'm quite glad to see the ink on the paper.

Perhaps now all the Leafs' fans can stop with their 'Perry for essentially a bag of pucks' trade proposals because they feel that the honor of playing for/trading with the Leafs should be enough compensation for anyone....

Anaheim commits to Perry: Probably a bad move
Cam Charron

March 18 2013


Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry, franchise players for the Anaheim Ducks, each turn 28 in May. According to research done by Gabe Desjardins, that probably means that they're at the end of their peak ages and out of their scoring primes. Ryan Getzlaf re-signed with the Ducks a couple of weeks ago, and tonight it was Corey Perry's term, via Real Pierre LeBrun:

That's an awful lot of money commit to two players on the wrong end of their careers. That's an awful lot of money commit to two players for a franchise that hasn't historically been a cap team. The Ducks haven't spent in the top half of the NHL since the 2009 season.

But this tweet from Bob McKenzie made me twitch a little:

Anybody who has followed our PDO charts from this season know that the Ducks' record is illusory. In the 2011 season, the Ducks made the playoffs despite being the 29th best possession team in the NHL. The next year, predictably, they were back in lottery contention.

The contract makes a lot of sense for Perry, and Getzlaf's also makes a lot of sense. By signing in Anaheim, he gets the maximize his payout since he can sign for 8 years instead of 7 if he were on the open market. For the Ducks, though, these are two contracts that could look awful bad awful fast, particularly if the expected slide for the Ducks begins sooner rather than later. They're the 25th best possession team in hockey this year, and it's not like this season we get a whole lot of sample size to judge the quality of a team based on wins and losses.

Cam Charron is BC-raised hockey fan and journalist and acts as the managing editor of The Leafs Nation. In his spare time, you can find him blogging about numbers at Canucks Army, discussing the juniors at Yahoo's Buzzing the Net, ranting in some way or another at the Score's Backhand Shelf, or acting as an MSM wannabe in the pages of the Vancouver Province

Time will tell if the signing was good or not. The Cap makes for difficult and unpopular decisions like the Rangers losing Brandon Prust to Montreal. We all understand why but we don't like it!

I kept hearing that he was going to go Ottawa. Oh well! Guess we'll have to trade for Ovechkin now.

They've got a lot of money tied up in a half dozen players. Makes me wonder what the rest of the team is gonna look like when the cap drops next year. I see a lot of fringe players on two-ways in their future.

As a Pens fan this almost feels like deja vu for me except this time Bobby Ryan plays the role of Jordan Staal. I just don't see any way they can keep all of them together next year.

Still awesome to see Perry take what I feel is a pretty big pay cut to stay with the Ducks verse testing the market. Pretty good deal.

Half of the expected cap for next year tied up in six players is going to be interesting to watch.

Shades of Tampa Bay. Win the Cup and tie up your elite players at the expense of your 2nd, 3rd and 4th liners and shut down (effective but not flashy) defense pair. Hate to see it but probably keeps whatever fans you have. Better than what Loria has done for baseball in Montreal and Miami.
