Ducks Sign Roman Durny
By Michael Walters
The Anaheim Ducks have signed goalie Roman Durny to a two-year entry-level contract per Cap Friendly.
Durny signed a two-year, entry-level contract worth $1,747,500 with an AAV of $873,750 per Cap Friendly. The deal contains a $132,500 in performance bonuses for the 2020-21 season.
A 2018 5th round pick(147th overall), Durny spent last season with the Norfolk Admirals(ECHL). He had a 3-10-0 record, 4.02 GAA and .881 SV%. In the two seasons prior to playing in the ECHL, he played in the USHL with the Des Moines Buccaneers posting a 37-29-2-3 record, 2.54 GAA and .913 SV%.
Durny spent his developmental years playing in Slovakia where the ice rinks are 15 feet wider than the typical North American ice rink. Durny did play in smaller rinks with the USHL Des Moines Buccaneers and ECHL Norfolk Admirals in the past few years.
“I’m just trying to get used to pro hockey here,” said Durny. “I played last year in juniors. I’m glad I played because I wasn’t used to the small rinks they use in US-style hockey. Now I’m getting used to pro players and I’m getting better every day here.”
Durny posted solid numbers while in the USHL but then had a drop off at the ECHL level. He will be AHL bound unless he can regain the form he had with the Buccaneers.
