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.
