Ducks sign Silfverberg to $26.25 million, 5-year extension

Ducks sign Silfverberg to $26.25 million, 5-year extension Jakob Silfverberg has signed a $26.5 million, five-year extension with the Anaheim Ducks, forgoing the chance to become an unrestricted free agent after this season. "I like it here a lot and wanted to stay," Silfverberg said after practice Saturday. "I feel like I am a hard-working guy and to get rewarded with a five-year deal means a lot. I had a feeling once talks started going that it was going to be pretty fast." Silfverberg leads the Ducks with 16 goals and has 24 points in 56 games. The Swedish forward has 99 goals and 115 assists over six seasons with Anaheim.

Ryan James Kesler (born August 31, 1984) is an American professional ice hockey center and an alternate captain for the Anaheim Ducks of the National Hockey League (NHL). Selected in the first round, 23rd overall, by the Vancouver Canucks in the 2003 NHL Entry Draft

Ryan Kesler may not play next season . That reality is currently staring right at the Anaheim Ducks , but how much does it actually concern them? Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, one of the pre-eminent insiders of the game, reported that Kesler ’s upcoming season was in jeopardy on May 25th.

The Anaheim Ducks are well out of the playoff race in the Western Conference, meaning they don’t need to rush players back from injury for the last bit of the season. That could mean that Ryan Kesler’s year is finished after 60 games, given his chronic hip pain and absence recently. General manager Bob Murray told Elliott Teaford of the Orange County Register that he doesn’t know if Kesler will play again this season, and that if Kesler were willing to shut down for the year and start the recovery process it “would be fine.”

The veteran center broke the 1,000-game threshold just this month, but he is a shadow of his former self and has just eight points on the season. The 34-year old has three more years on his contract but seems like a candidate for long-term injured reserve at some point in the future, if his hip injury doesn’t improve.

With lingering injury issues, the Ducks expect Ryan Kesler back, but they're being cautious and he could miss the entire 2018-19 NHL season . Kesler missed the first three months of the previous NHL season after undergoing hip surgery and the rest of his season was a struggle, scoring only 14

Kesler played 44 games last season , making his debut Dec. 27 following offseason hip surgery. The newspaper said the center, who turns 34 on Aug. The Ducks have an arbitration hearing with defenseman Brandon Montour on July 24. Murray said the sides could agree to a short-term contract.

  • The Chicago Blackhawks have their eye on second-round pick Ian Mitchell as he progresses at the University of Denver, and Scott Powers of The Athletic (subscription required) caught up with the young defenseman to get a read on whether he would be willing to sign after this season. Mitchell wouldn’t commit to anything but explained that a recent rumor of him not wanting to sign in Chicago wasn’t true. “I want to play for the Blackhawks as soon as I can,” Mitchell told Powers, though he is still focused on taking Denver as far as it can go this year.
  • Speaking of the college market, the Vancouver Canucks are still eyeing potential NCAA defensemen even after inking Quinn Hughes and Josh Teves over the last few days. That’s what GM Jim Benning told Ben Kuzma of The Province on Thursday, explaining that they would like to sign one more defenseman out of the college ranks. It’s not clear who they have their eye on, but with names like Jimmy Schuldt still to sign, there is plenty of talent to recruit over the next few days and weeks. The Canucks have a great example to point to during that recruitment process, as Troy Stecher has found great success with the team since signing out of the University of North Dakota in 2016.
