September 2020 – While the 2019-20 season wasn’t as good statically as many fantasy owners had hoped, it was a nice stepping stone type of year for Terry. He struggled with confidence early on and was sent down to the AHL in January. When he was recalled from San Diego after seven contests, you could see more swag in his game. He was stronger on the puck and wasn’t afraid to shoot. Ultimately, he was sent down at the end of February to help the Gulls push for a Calder Cup and finished the AHL season with seven goals and 16 points in 14 games.
With his entry-level contract expiring, he signed a three-year extension this offseason so you can guarantee a full NHL season for him from now on. He still has great vision and will be a good setup man five-on-five and on the power play, but don’t expect him to put up high shot totals or provide any gritty categories for your fantasy teams.

October 2019 – Terry is off to a slow start in the 2019-20 season. He only has one goal so far in this campaign, but is creating more offense than last season. He is very familiar with the Ducks coaching staff as Dallas Eakins was in San Diego with him last season and that has helped him with his confidence, but the results haven’t been there. The slow start is not something to be completely distraught about as the whole Anaheim offense has not done much this season. The team has only scored 25 goals in 11 games so when the ketchup bottle starts flowing, Terry will be right in the middle of that pour. Lucas Main
March 2019 – With Carlyle gone, the youth movement has started in Anaheim. He is playing with a ton of confidence and has seven points in five games in the month of March thus far, including two on the power play. When his confidence is up, he is very crafty with the puck and creates plays out of thin air. He is a lock to play in the NHL full time in 2019-2020. Lucas Main
January 2019 – After regaining his confidence in the AHL, Terry was called up to provide some offense. His game has started to transition to the big club, scoring a goal and an assist in three games played on his recent recall. His goal came on the power play as he walked it in from the right point and fired a wicked wrister top corner. That play requires a lot of confidence so it is good to see Terry starting to adjust to the pro game and create opportunities for the Ducks. Lucas Main
October 2018 – Troy Terry has been sent down to AHL San Diego. He played in six games (with one healthy scratch) before the demotion. He still has lots of promise, he just could not find consistent linemates. Some nights he’d be on the fourth line and others on the first. Spending some time in the minors playing in all situations is best for his development right now. He recorded two goals and an assist in his first AHL contest. Lucas Main
October 2018 – Terry started camp on a line with Ryan Getzlaf and they instantly had chemistry. A week later, Corey Perry goes down with a knee injury for five months, opening up a spot for Terry to stay with the big club full time. Look for Terry to play with Getzlaf for the majority of the season and score second power play time to start. Lucas Main
April 2018 – Terry only suited up for two games after he signed his ELC. Coach Carlyle makes his young players earn their minutes and with all the veterans Anaheim had he elected to sit the DU alum. He was crafty in his two games, throwing three shots on goal and created a few scoring opportunities. GM Bob Murray said he wants the Ducks to be a faster team next season, so that bodes well for Terry to be in the line up full-time next season. Look for him to slot alongside Adam Henrique or Ryan Getzlaf. Lucas Main
March 2018 – Troy Terry has officially signed his ELC with the Anaheim Ducks, foregoing his senior year at Denver. He had 48 points in 39 games for the Pioneers this season and five assists in five games for Team USA at the 2018 Olympic games. He will see top nine minutes and with the Ducks hurting on the power play, don’t be surprised if he gets lots of power play minutes to start. Most of the Ducks forwards are already on contract for next season so this is a good chance for him to build some chemistry and take the league by storm next season. Expect for him to start on the wing with either Adam Henrique or Ryan Getzlaf. Lucas Main
October 2017 – Terry capped off a magical World Junior by winning a NCAA Championship with the Pioneers at the University of Denver. He finished with 45 points and 22 goals in 35 games and will look to win back-to-back ships as he decided to stay in school. Another year of development won’t hurt him so keep him stashed on your farm squads for next season. Lucas Main
January 2017 – Terry made the USA WJC squad and started with fourth line duties, but he came out as one of the stars of the tournament. He had three goals and three assists during the tournament, but came in clutch during the shootout of the semi-finals and the gold medal game. “Five-Hole Terry” scored three slick shootout goals versus Russia in the semis to send Team USA to the finals against Canada and in the gold medal game scored the only shootout goal to lift the USA over Canada for their fourth gold. In his first game back for Denver U, Terry came out and scored five points. His confidence is sky high right now and he’ll look to make Anaheim’s roster next season. Lucas Main
December 2015 – Terry played his 2014-2015 season with the USNTDP U-18 team. In the 25 games he played in the USHL the Colorado native posted six goals, and eight assists for a point total of 14. His total statistics with the USDP are 66 games played, 19 goals, 25 assists (44 points), which ended up being good for seventh on his team in scoring. Terry also competed in the Hlinka Memorial tournament for the United States where he was able to amass a point-per-game average (scoring four goals, and adding one assist in the five games he appeared in).
Currently, Troy is playing for his hometown school in the NCAA – The University of Denver. He has skated in 16 games, tallying four goals, three assists, and a minus seven rating. The Denver native still has a lot of room to grow, and needs to tack on some mass to his small frame. Terry has shown some upside as a late round pick for the Ducks; he has an NHL caliber wrist shot and can score from all areas of the offensive zone, but needs improvement playing in his own end. Chances are he spends a couple more seasons with The University of Denver before trying to make the leap to the professional level. Bryan Puffer
