It also includes a no-movement clause, according to HNIC’s Elliotte Friedman.
With that contract inked, the vaunted Perry-Getzlaf duo will carry a combined $16.9 million cap hit between them starting in 2013-14. Those deals are set to expire in 2020-21.

Ducks management now faces some tough questions about the rest of their financial structure, as they’ll have about $53 million committed to 16 players next season. It’s likely that will force the team to part ways with a key player or two, but it’s clear that Getzlaf and Perry remain the core of one of the NHL’s biggest surprise squads.
