Ducks Sign Patrick Maroon to One-Year Extension

(Pretend that's a Ducks jersey)

The Anaheim Ducks have signed LW Patrick Maroon to a one-year contract extension. Maroon was the leading scorer for the Syracuse Crunch with 74 points in 75 games. He was acquired from Philadelphia (with RW David Laliberte) in a trade for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson. Maroon was thought to have character problems causing Philly to want to part ways with their 2007 draft pick. As far as we can tell, none of those issues came to light once he arrived in Anaheim.

During the 2011-2012 season, Maroon was brought up to the big club to play alongside Ryan Getzlaf and Corey Perry in an experiment by Randy Carlyle. It was thought that Maroon's big body (6'4") and scoring touch would make him a compliment to Getzlaf and Perry. Carlyle's predilection to not favor rookies played against Maroon from the outset. Maroon was sent back to Syracuse after two games.

He wouldn't have been re-signed had Bruce Boudreau not thought he could have a shot at the roster come camp. Maroon looked completely lost on the ice in his two games up with Anaheim. If he's learned anything from those games and can find a way to score in the NHL, he's got a real chance of making the opening night roster.
