The Anaheim Ducks announced that Kesler has signed a six-year contract extension through the 2021-2022 NHL season.
The contract is reportedly worth $41.25 million and will end once Kesler is 37 years old, but he feels that he still has plenty of hockey left in him.
“This isn’t my last contract,” Kesler said. “I want another one after this. Right now, I’m sitting here saying I won’t be done. My family supports that, and they know.”

“I felt more comfortable with voicing my own opinion, and battling with the guys night in and night out,” Kesler said. “You become a family and I definitely feel a part of the core group now.”
