ESPN’s E.J. Hradek reported that Ryan will be paid $3.25 million in the coming 2010-11 season and $5,562,500 in each of the remaining four years. A source told the Register that the contract does not contain either a no-trade clause or a no-movement clause. Ryan is expected to sign this afternoon.
Ryan, who scored a team-leading 35 goals and had 29 assists for the Ducks last season, was offered congratulations from his Team USA teammate, Erik Johnson of the St. Louis Blues, via Twitter:
Congrats to @b_ryan9 on signing his new deal! Also congrats to McDonalds in Anaheim, who wont go bankrupt now becuz of Bobby. #bobbybigmac
The contract for Ryan is similar, albeit slightly less lucrative, than the five-year extensions signed by fellow Ducks Corey Perry and Ryan Getzlaf, both of whom have three years remaining on their deals.
