ANAHEIM, Calif. -- The Anaheim Ducks locked up prized young forward Bobby Ryan on Tuesday, signing him to a five-year contract.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but earlier in the day TSN of Canada reported it is worth $25.5 million.
"We're pleased to have come to an agreement with Bobby before training camp," said Ducks general manager Bob Murray. "Bobby is already a proven NHL goal scorer at the age of 23 and certainly has his best years ahead of him."
Ryan, a native of suburban Philadelphia, posted career highs of 35 goals and 29 assists in 81 games last season for the Ducks, and also earned a spot on the silver-medal winning Team USA squad at the 2010 Winter Games in Vancouver.
He was a finalist for the Calder Trophy in 2008-09 after striking for 31 goals and 57 points in 64 games in his first full pro season.
Anaheim selected Ryan second overall in the 2005 draft, and in 168 games over three seasons, he has posted 71 goals and 60 assists.
