Ducks lock up Perry

TUESDAY, MARCH 19, 2013

Corey Perry is following Ryan Getzlaf’s lead yet again, sticking with the Anaheim Ducks for the long term. Perry agreed to an eight-year, $69 million contract extension with the Ducks on Monday night, keeping the former NHL MVP with the club through the 2020-21 NHL season. Perry’s new deal is the same length as the extension signed by Getzlaf earlier this month – the longest contracts allowed under the NHL’s new collective bargaining agreement. Just 10 days after signing Getzlaf to a $66 million extension, owner Henry Samueli signed a huge check for Perry, the goal-scoring beneficiary of linemate Getzlaf’s playmaking. – AP
