Crawford adds contract extension to day with Cup

It has been such a great summer for Corey Crawford that he could hardly be blamed if he didn't want it to end.

Crawford began the day he earned celebrating with the Stanley Cup in his hometown by agreeing to a six-year contract extension Monday with the Chicago Blackhawks. The deal, which begins when his current pact expires after the 2013-14 season, is reportedly worth $36 million.

"Obviously being able to have a chance to bring the Cup back home and all the people that I went through minor hockey with and grew up with and all my family was pretty special to start off with, and to add this on top of it is amazing," Crawford said. "I want to be in Chicago for my whole career and this is amazing to be able to do this and get this deal done."

Quote of the Day

For our team, as a group, we've never been this far before, and so it's just more lessons learned, and sometimes you have to go to the school of hard knocks to find out what works and what doesn't. We've got a young group. They've played some unreal hockey here to get us this far, and we showed if we're not going to play the proper way, a really, really good hockey team is going to beat you, and that's what they did. It's a lesson learned.
