Ducks Re-Sign Jakob Silfverberg to 4-Year Deal

The Anaheim Ducks have re-signed restricted free agent forward Jakob Silfverberg to a four-year contract extension, the team announced on Friday.

The team didn’t announce terms, but’s Curtis Zupke reports that the deal carries an AAV of $3.75 million.

The Ducks acquired Silfverberg in the July 2013 trade that sent Bobby Ryan to the Ottawa Senators, bringing back Stefan Noesen and a 2014 1st round draft pick that was used on drafting winger Nick Ritchie, in addition to Silfverberg.

Last season Silfverberg scored 13 goals and 26 assists through 81 games, coming on particularly strong late in the season and during the playoffs, when he posted four goals and 14 assists in 16 games.

Those offensive totals come in addition to the strong defensive presence the soon-to-be 25-year-old forward brings to Anaheim. He posted a 0.9% score-adjusted CF%Rel and his score-adjusted CA60 of 49.72 ranked third on the team among forwards who played at least 20 games.

The signing of Silfverberg gets the Ducks close to finishing business with their restricted free agents. Only Carl Hagelin remains to be signed.
