ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -- The Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks have signed Chris Kunitz to a four-year, $14.9 million contract extension, putting the left wing under contract through the 2011-12 season.
Kunitz had 25 goals and 35 assists in 81 games last season and one goal and five assists in 13 playoff games, missing eight because of injuries.

"We are very pleased to have him signed prior to his eligibility as an unrestricted free agent next summer."
Kunitz, who turns 28 next month, will earn $1.15 million this season to complete his previous contract. He will be paid $3.5 million in the 2008-09 season; $3.6 million in the 2009-10 season; $3.8 million in the 2010-11 season and $4 million in the 2011-12 season.
