ANAHEIM, Calif. — Centre Adam Henrique has signed a five-year extension worth $29.1 million with the Anaheim Ducks.

The deal announced Monday runs through the 2023-24 season.

The 28-year-old centre led Anaheim with eight game-winning goals (third in the NHL), tied for second in goals and tied for third in power play goals with four in 57 games.

Henrique posted the second-longest point streak to start a career in Anaheim at five games.

He had a career-high 30 goals in 2015-16 with the Devils, who selected him 82nd overall in the third round of the 2008 NHL draft.
