Ducks sign Maxim Golod to 3-year entry-level contract

The Ducks signed left wing Maxim Golod to a three-year, $ 2.38-million entry-level contract Wednesday.

Golod was the leading scorer for the Erie (Pennsylvania) Otters of the junior-level Ontario Hockey League with 78 points in 63 games this past season.

Known as a standout playmaker, Golod had a team-leading 53 assists to go with 25 goals. He was teammates with defenseman Jamie Drysdale, the Ducks’ first-round draft pick, with the Otters for the past two seasons. Golod was undrafted in 2018; Drysdale was the sixth overall selection Oct. 6.

Golod, listed at 5-foot-11 and 176 pounds, had 54 goals and 92 assists in 178 games over three seasons with Erie. The 20-year-old Concord, Ontario, native is expected to play with the San Diego Gulls, the Ducks’ AHL team, adding to their minor-league depth in 2020-21.
