Ryan Strome sent quacking, signs with Anaheim Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks are ready to fly.

The Ducks agreed to terms with forward Ryan Strome on a five-year contract worth an average annual value of $5 million. 

The Ducks made a splash (pun intended) during the weaning hours of free agent frenzy on Wednesday evening, agreeing to terms with forward Ryan Strome on a five-year contract worth an average annual value of $5 million. 

Additional details of the deal, including salary structure and possible trade protections have yet to be disclosed.

The Ducks have made an effort this offseason to build offensive depth around their young stars and the acquisition of Strome is a clear message they mean business. The 29-year-old Strome, who hails from Mississauga, Canada, is fresh off a solid season in which he notched 21 goals and 33 assists for 54 points in 74 games. Strome also was a factor in the playoffs, scoring nine points in 19 games during the Rangers’ run to the Eastern Conference Final.

The Ducks have clearly made an effort to surround their young stars with offensive depth this summer and so far have accomplished just that, with Strome being the biggest addition of the bunch. The 29-year-old is coming off an impressive season for the New York Rangers in which he racked up 21 goals and 33 assists for 54 points in 74 games while logging over 18 minutes of ice time. Strome also played a key role in the playoffs as well, chipping in nine points in 19 games during the Rangers’ surprise run to the Eastern Conference Final.
