Anaheim Ducks’ jumbo truck-sized left wing Patrick Maroon(19) signs a one-year contract extension joining them for a 3rd season in their system.
He had a career year in 2011/2012 scoring highs in goals, assists and points (32-42=74) in 75 AHL games for Syracuse Crunch, leading the team in points.
In 289 regular season AHL games (first with Adirondack Phantoms) he’s racked up 92 goals and 136 assists.
The 24-year old was originally a Philadelphia Flyers‘ 6th round pick in the 2007 draft (#161 overall).
He didn’t play his first pair of NHL games until this past season though, not finding his way on the scoresheet.
As the Ducks regroup for the next year, if he has a good training camp there’s reason to think the 6’4″ 225 lbs. forward could find himself on the opening night roster.
