Terry Given Opportunity to Grow

July 29, 2020 1:49 am

ANAHEIM, CA — Troy Terry arrived to the Anaheim Ducks with much fanfare thanks to a stellar amateur career, and with a recently-inked three-year, $4.35 million extension, he will have plenty of opportunities to make good on his potential.

The deal itself, although not lucrative by NHL standards, does provide Terry with a considerable pay bump as someone who has bounced between the big club and the minors. Previously on a two-way contract, which meant a $70,000 salary in the AHL, the 22-year-old will now be paid well over a million dollars a year regardless of what league he plays in for the next three seasons. Not bad at all for a player with just 28 points and 81 NHL games to his name. Clearly, the Ducks’ front office is confident that he can develop into much more than those totals would indicate. When looking at a few key areas of growth in his game, that confidence becomes perfectly understandable.

Ducks Sign Troy Terry to Three-Year Contract Extension

July 15, 2020 2:24 am

ANAHEIM, CA – Troy Terry signed a three-year contract with the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday.

The 22-year-old forward could have become a restricted free agent after this season. He scored 15 points (four goals, 11 assists) in 47 games before the NHL season was paused March 12 due to concerns surrounding the coronavirus. Terry missed six weeks after breaking a bone below his kneecap in a 4-1 loss at the Philadelphia Flyers on Dec. 17.

Selected by Anaheim in the fifth round (No. 148) of the 2015 NHL Draft, Terry has 28 points (eight goals, 20 assists) in 81 NHL games.

Late-bloomer Troy Terry builds on skill set to advance pro career with Anaheim Ducks

ANAHEIM, CA – The hands were obvious to anyone who saw Troy Terry play hockey at a young age.

What observers may have overlooked were his head and his heart, and those are big reasons why the Highlands Ranch product has an excellent chance to stay in the NHL with the Anaheim Ducks in his second full professional season.

“Troy is ultra-competitive, and Troy expects himself to be a difference maker,” said Jim Montgomery, his college coach at the University of Denver and now the Dallas Stars’ head coach. “He wants to be on the ice in the big moments. He wants to make plays and believes he’s going to make plays. That’s why excelled at the World Junior Championships and during our national championship run (in 2017).

Troy Terry is Key Piece for Ducks Future

ANAHEIM, CA – It’s been over four months since Troy Terry skated in PyeongChang as a member of the men’s Olympic ice hockey team, more than 14 months since he became a national champion and about 17 months since he went five-hole at the 2017 WJC (multiple times) and won gold.

For being just 20 years old, Terry has more accomplishments on his resume than most players his age. Something he does lack though is games in the NHL. After losing to Ohio State in the regionals of the 2018 Frozen Four tournament with his defending champion Denver Pioneers, Terry signed an entry-level deal with the Anaheim Ducks. He only saw two regular-season games and watched a dismal sweeping of the Ducks from the press box in the playoffs. If anything’s for sure, though, he should have a spot on the roster for the 2018-19 season.

Troy Terry Using Development Camp to Lead, Make an Impact

ANAHEIM, CA – As Troy Terry makes his way around the Ducks locker room for prospect development camp, his teammates take notice. They recognize him from his international hockey experience, representing Team USA at the 2017 World Juniors, and, most recently, the 2018 Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Terry, who finished off a stellar collegiate career with the University of Denver this past spring, was one of four NCAA players chosen by USA Hockey for the Olympics.

Terry doesn’t turn 21 until September 10, but the Highlands Ranch, Colorado native is one of the older players here. He’s also one of a few with NHL experience. As such, Terry is viewed as a leader for this weeklong camp.
