The Anaheim Ducks have reportedly signed center Ryan Kesler. It is reportedly a six-year extension that would bring the 30-year-old near the end of his career, and is reportedly worth $41.25 million.
He was traded to the Ducks last summer from the Vancouver Canucks.
In his first season in California, he had 20 goals and 27 assists for 47 points in 81 games. He also had four game-winning goals.
Kesler was a big factor in the teams run to the Western Conference Final, before losing to eventual champion, the Chicago Blackhawks.
During the playoffs, he had seven goal in 13 games.
Besides Kesler, Matt Beleskey and Corey Perry scored the other Anaheim playoff goals.
He was making just $5 million dollars last season. And would have made $5 million next season in the final year of his deal, before signing this new deal.
Prior to coming to the Ducks, he spent 11-years with the Canucks.
