The Anaheim Ducks, the parent club of the San Diego Gulls, announced Sunday they signed Gulls captain center Sam Carrick and defenseman Brendan Guhle to contract extensions.
Carrick, who was named Gulls captain in October before starting his fourth American Hockey League season in San Diego, signed a one-year extension through the 2020-21 season.
The 28-year-old led the Gulls in points and goals before the season was suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic and was tied for second in the AHL with four shorthanded goals.
Carrick was acquired from Chicago in 2017 and has appeared in 15 games with the Ducks and scored his first NHL goal, a shorthanded one, earlier this season against the New York Islanders.
