The Anaheim Ducks have signed cornerstone defenceman Cam Fowler to an eight-year, $52 million contract extension through the 2025-26 season.

Fowler has been a fixture on the Ducks’ blue line since he unexpectedly fell to Anaheim at 12th overall in the 2010 draft. The U.S. Olympian was outstanding last season, getting a career-best 11 goals and 28 assists before adding nine points in the post-season.

The Ducks also grabbed veteran goalie Ryan Miller on the free-agent market, signing him to a two-year, $4 million deal.

Miller spent the last three years in Vancouver after a decade in Buffalo. The veteran, who turns 37 years old in two weeks, replaces Jonathan Bernier as the complement to starter John Gibson.
