Anaheim Ducks Sign Ryan Getzlaf To Lucrative Long-Term Deal.

The Anaheim Ducks locked up their franchise cornerstone and best player by signing Ryan Getzlaf to an 8-year contract extension that begins next year. The deal, worth $66 million, comes as Getzlaf was in the final year of his contract.


Getzlaf is 3rd all-time in franchise history with 501 points, picking up his 500th yesterday via an assist. He leads the team in scoring during this truncated season and has a skill set almost unmatched. If you're at all familiar with what I collect and blog about you know The Captain is my favorite hockey player.

“It’s always been my goal to be here. I’ve always envisioned myself playing for one team. Especially this organization. It’s been great to me. It’s nice to be settled in and know that I’m going to be here for a long time.”

I'm stoked to see him re-sign and lead the team for the next decade. Anyhoo, what would this post be without some of the favorite pieces from my Getz Collection? An incomplete post, that's what.




































I have a lot of favorites....

Congrats on a well-earned deal Getzy!

Very cool, I'm happy for you! Your franchise player re-ups for a long time AND you get a reason to show off your ridiculous PC.
