Ducks ink Fowler to 5-year extension

Anaheim, CA (Sports Network) - The Anaheim Ducks signed defenseman Cam Fowler to a five-year contract extension on Saturday. Per club policy, no financial terms were disclosed.

The 20-year-old blueliner, a first-round draft choice in 2010, had one year remaining on his initial three-year, entry-level contract.

"We're excited to sign Cam to a long-term contract," said Anaheim general manager Bob Murray. "He's a character kid with a great chance to become an elite NHL defenseman."

Fowler totaled five goals and 29 points, but was a minus-28, while participating in all 82 regular-season games last season. In two pro campaigns with the Ducks, he has posted 15 goals and 69 points.
