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."
