Adam Henrique will continue his stint in Anaheim.

The Ducks on Monday announced they signed the veteran center to a five-year contract extension that runs through the 2023-24 season.

While the financial details were not disclosed, the Los Angeles Times reported the deal carries an average annual value of $5.825 million.
