Anaheim - The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenceman Cam Fowler, their first-round draft choice, to a three-year entry-level contract.

Per team policy, no financial details of the deal were released.

The 18-year-old Fowler was the 12th overall selection in the 2010 NHL Entry Draft.

He spent last season playing for the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League and recorded eight goals and 47 assists in 55 games. Fowler added three goals and 11 helpers in 19 postseason games in leading the team to its second straight league title and Memorial Cup as junior hockey champions.

Fowler was also a member of the Team USA squads that claimed a gold medal at the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship and 2009 IIHF Under-18 World Championship, where he was tabbed as the tournament's top blueliner.
