The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed captain Ryan Getzlaf to an eight-year contract.
The Ducks announced the deal Friday with Getzlaf, the former Canadian Olympic center who has spent his entire NHL career with Anaheim. His new contract runs through the 2020-21 season.
Getzlaf would have been an unrestricted free agent this summer along with Corey Perry, the former NHL MVP and his longtime teammate.
The 27-year-old Getzlaf has scored 499 points in 534 games with Anaheim, establishing himself as one of the NHL's top playmakers. He won the Stanley Cup in 2007 and became Anaheim's captain in 2010.
Getzlaf is in the midst of an outstanding season for the Ducks, who have the NHL's second-best record behind Chicago. Getzlaf has nine goals and 18 assists in just 22 games.
