Atlanta inks Pavelec to two-year deal
Atlanta Thrashers sign Ondrej Pavelec to two-year deal.
Goaltender Ondrej Pavelec has agreed to a new two-year deal with the Atlanta Thrashers, his agent confirmed on Twitter on Thursday morning.

Pavelec, who turns 23 on Aug. 31, appeared in 42 games for Atlanta last season. He went 14-18-7 with a 3.29 goals-against average and a .906 save percentage. He will share the goaltending duties with newly-signed Chris Mason next season.

The signing was finalized just a day after Thrashers brass reportedly decided to let forward Clarke MacArthur become an unrestricted free agent. MacArthur was awarded $2.4 million in a salary arbitration hearing.

Atlanta has another hearing next week with forward Andrew Ladd, who was acquired from the Chicago Blackhawks on July 1. Ladd had 17 goals and 21 assists for the Hawks last season and 6 points (3 goals, 3 assists) in 19 playoff games to help Chicago win its first Stanley Cup since 1961.

They said, 'You're going to love the city. It's smaller than Philadelphia, but you're going to love it. You're going to love the fans. Just watching the playoffs last year, the fans seemed louder there than they did anywhere. I'm really excited about that.
