No. 1 goalie Henrik Lundqvist agrees to $59.5 million extension with New York Rangers

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Goalie Henrik Lundqvist has agreed to a contract extension with the New York Rangers.

The team did not announce terms of the deal Wednesday.

The 31-year-old Lundqvist has been a Vezina Trophy finalist as the NHL's top goaltender in five of his eight seasons, winning the award in 2012.

Lundqvist has a 284-182-57 career record with a 2.26 goals-against average, .920 save percentage and 47 shutouts.

The Swede was a seventh-round draft pick by the Rangers in 2000 and made his NHL debut in 2005.

Quote of the Day

It's obviously not fun to not know, but on the other hand, I'm not in a rush. I'm going to be back to 100 percent before I start playing. I'm not going to play on 90 percent.
