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

I don't have a crystal ball. Predicting is a real complicated thing. If we stay healthy, have enough depth and get the good goaltending we think we're going to have, you can go all the way. But a lot of things have to happen. There's going to be a lot of teams that think the same thing. Everyone made deals. We're all are optimistic about where we'll end up.
