The Anaheim Ducks announced that they have re-signed RW Dan Sexton to a two-year contract. Sexton has played parts of two seasons with the Ducks, accumulating 13 goals and 19 assists with a -9 rating in 88 games played.
The deal is reportedly a two-way contract worth $550,000 in the NHL and $105,000 in the AHL for the first season, and a one-year contract for the second season.
Sexton quickly endeared himself to Ducks fans when he jumped at the opportunity to play on the second line in place of an injured Teemu Selanne during the 2009-2010 season. He scored 4 goals and 1 assist over a span of 3 games and ended the season with 9-10=19. However, since that time Sexton has struggled to produce offensively, scoring only 4 goals in 47 games in 2010-2011.
Unless he finds the back of the net on a more consistent basis, expect Sexton to spend time with both Syracuse and Anaheim this coming season.
