Fowler signs three-year deal with Ducks

The Anaheim Ducks have signed defenseman Cam Fowler to a three-year entry-level contract.

Per club policy, no terms of the deal were disclosed.

Fowler was selected by the Ducks in the first round (12th overall) of this year's NHL Entry Draft.

Fowler, an 18-year-old Farmington Hills native, collected 8-47=55 points with a +38 rating and 14 penalty minutes in 55 games with the Windsor Spitfires of the Ontario Hockey League in 2009-10. Fowler ranked seventh among OHL defensemen in scoring to help Windsor finish first in its conference during the regular season.

The 6-foot-1, 190-pound blueliner also added 3-11=14 points with 10 PIM in 19 OHL playoff games, helping the Spitfires to their second consecutive OHL championship and second straight Memorial Cup as junior hockey champions.

As a member of Team USA, Fowler won a gold medal at both the 2010 IIHF World Junior Championship and 2009 IIHF U-18 World Championship, where he was named the tournament’s top defenseman. Fowler also played two seasons in Ann Arbor with the U.S. National Training Development Program. In 2008-09, he was a member of the Under-18 team recording 8-32=40 points with 44 PIM in 55 games.
