CHICAGO - The Blackhawks and goalie Corey Crawford have agreed to a six-year contract extension.

Crawford started every playoff game for Chicago last season, helping the Blackhawks win their second Stanley Cup title in three years. He went 16-7 with an NHL-best 1.84 goals-against average in the post-season.

The Blackhawks announced the deal on Monday. The contract runs through the 2019-20 season.

The 28-year-old Crawford was selected by Chicago in the second round of the 2003 draft. Crawford, who made his NHL debut in January 2006, is 83-43 with eight shutouts, a 2.40 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage in 152 career games with the Blackhawks.

Playing for my favorite team growing up, I've probably scored that goal a million times in my driveway. It feels good to actually do it in real life.
