Ducks re-sign Maroon, Crunch’s second-leading scorer.

When the Ducks obtained Patrick Maroon from the Philadelphia Flyers last November, general manager Bob Murray called it a “second chance” for a player who was abruptly dismissed from the Flyers’ American Hockey League affiliate a month earlier.

Maroon took advantage of that chance and was rewarded with a one-year contract that pays $550,000 in the NHL and $60,000 in the AHL.

The 23-year-old winger had 21 goals and 48 points — both second on the Crunch — in 57 games last season after joining Syracuse from the Adirondack Phantoms. The Ducks originally acquired Maroon and David Laliberte from the Flyers for Danny Syvret and Rob Bordson.

A sixth-round draft pick by the Flyers in 2007, the 6-foot-4, 225-pound winger has spent all four of his professional seasons in the AHL.
