The 27-year-old Perry, a former Ducks first-round draft choice and winner of the 2010-11 Hart Trophy as the NHL's leading scorer, signed the deal after Anaheim also inked linemate Ryan Getzlaff to a long-term contract this month.

"Staying in Anaheim has always been my first choice," Perry said. "This is a great place to play, and I'm very grateful to have the opportunity to remain here."

Perry played a key role in the Ducks' 2007 Stanley Cup championship and has compiled six goals and 15 points over 21 career playoff contests.
