Corey Crawford agrees to six-year Blackhawks extension
The Blackhawks have announced an agreement of terms on a six-year contract extension for goalie Corey Crawford.
Renaud Lavoie reports the deal is worth $36 million. The contract will run through the 2019-20 season and keeps Crawford from becoming a restricted free agent after the upcoming season.
Crawford, 28, is 83-43 with eight shutouts, a 2.40 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage in 152 career games in eight seasons with the Blackhawks.
The Blackhawks’ 2003 second-round draft pick started every game of the Blackhawks’ 2013 Stanley Cup championship run, posting a 16-7 postseason record and an NHL-best 1.84 goals-against average.
