ANAHEIM, Calif. – The Anaheim Ducks, NHL parent club of the Norfolk Admirals, have signed left wing Patrick Maroon to a two-year contract extension through the 2014-15 NHL season. Per club policy, no financial terms of the deal were disclosed.
Maroon, 24 (4/23/88), has appeared in 11 games for Anaheim this season, scoring two goals (2-0=2) with 10 penalty minutes (PIM). He scored the game-tying goal in a 2-1 victory on Mar. 12 at Minnesota and tallied his first career NHL goal on Feb. 16 at Nashville, beating Pekka Rinne in an eventual 3-2 shootout win.
