The Anaheim Ducks are so impressed with the play of defenseman Mark Fistric, they want to keep him around a bit longer.
The Ducks announced they’ve signed the veteran blue liner to a three-year extension to stay with the team. Eric Stephens of the Orange County Register reports the deal is worth a total of $3.8 million, good for a cap hit of $1.267 million per year.
Fistric has played in 27 games with Anaheim this season and has five assists. He joined the Ducks as a free agent over the summer after spending last season with the Edmonton Oilers. Before that, he spent five seasons with the Dallas Stars.
