Ducks Re-sign Fowler.

Fowler inks five-year extension with Ducks.

The Anaheim Ducks today announced the re-signing of defenseman Cam Fowler to a five-year contract extension worth $4 million per season. Fowler, 20, is entering the final season of his three-year entry level deal.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Fowler will make $1.4 million if he hits all his bonus clauses this season. In only two seasons he’s become arguably the Ducks top blueliner and one of the best young players in the league, so little surprise management wanted to get him under wraps for an additional five years. Should he fulfill his full potential as projected, the Ducks could have a potential Norris candidate inked to a very affordable deal. Hopefully, he’ll have little difficulty handling the heightened expectations which goes with such a significant raise.

  1. The thing is the large hike these guys are getting right out of their entry deals. Most of them are being paid on potential instead of actual stats and what they have already achieved. They are not earning the contracts they are being given. You can’t fault the player and agent. They are trying to get the most they can. The owners and GMs are handing out free money.

    In negotiations the owners will ask for some of that money back in contract roll backs and/or taking away another slice of the revenue pie.
