Ducks sign Drysdale to 3-year deal worth reported $6.9 million

The Anaheim Ducks signed defenseman Jamie Drysdale to a three-year contract, the team announced Thursday.

The pact carries an average annual value of $2.3 million, Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman reports.

A torn labrum limited Drysdale to only eight games last season. The 21-year-old was a restricted free agent with no arbitration rights and wasn’t eligible for an offer sheet due to a lack of professional seasons.

Drysdale, the 2020 sixth overall pick, tallied four goals and 32 points in 81 contests in 2021-22.

Anaheim signed its other restricted free agent, Trevor Zegras, to a three-year contract with a $5.75-million cap hit on Oct. 2.
