Ducks sign goalie Andersen to two-year extension
The Anaheim Ducks have signed 24-year-old goaltender Frederik Andersen to a two-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season.

The Anaheim Ducks have signed goaltender Frederik Andersen to a two-year contract extension through the 2015-16 season. No financial terms were disclosed.

The Ducks announced the signing a few minutes after Andersen's 26-save performance in a 2-1 road victory against the Ottawa Senators.

Andersen, 24, made his NHL debut Oct. 20 against the Dallas Stars. He entered the game in relief of Jonas Hiller to start the second period and stopped all 24 shots he faced as the Ducks rallied for a 6-3 victory. The 6-foot-4, 230-pound goaltender was recalled by Anaheim on Oct. 18 after beginning the season with a 2-0-0 record, one shutout, a 0.96 goals-against average and a save percentage of .971 in two games with the Norfolk Admirals of the American Hockey League.

The Ducks chose Andersen, a native of Herning, Denmark, in the third round (No. 87) in the 2012 NHL Draft. He is 26-18-1 in 49 AHL games with five shutouts, a 2.14 GAA and .931 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

It was a different game in the past, that's for sure. It's not exactly what I was expecting but I think the experience paid off for a lot of our guys that realized what it takes in a Game 7. Realistically the effort we put forward, we might not even had to put 60 [minutes], but we just couldn't get a couple bounces to go our way and we just kept pushing.
