The Chicago Blackhawks announced today that they have agreed to a six-year contract extension with goaltender Corey Crawford through the end of the 2019-20 National Hockey League season.Last season the 28-year-old posted a 16-7 record with one shutout, a league-best 1.84 goals-against average, a .932 save percentage in 23 post season games, and helped the Hawks win the Stanley Cup.
Crawford ranked third in the NHL in goals-against average, fifth in save percentage, and ranked 11th in wins and shutouts during the regular season. A strong season for both Corey Crawford and Ray Emery helped them win a William M. Jennings trophy for allowing the fewest goals against during the 2012-2013 season.
Crawford was selected by the Blackhawks in the second round, 52nd overall, in the 2003 NHL Draft.
