Carter Rowney is moving to California. The local hockey player has signed a three year contract with the Anaheim Ducks of the NHL.
Rowney has spent the past two years with the Pittsburgh Penguins, winning the Stanley Cup with them in his first NHL season in 2017. In his time with the team, the forward played 71 games, earning 12 points.
Over the last season, Rowney played in just more than half of the Penguins’ games and was considered a mainstay on the fourth line. The unrestricted free agent’s contract through 2020/2021 is reportedly worth $1.133 million per season.
#NHLDucks Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray on today's signings:
"We needed to get faster, so the primary goal was to add some speed up front with some depth signings. We also wanted a veteran defenseman with NHL experience and strong leadership traits."
