TORONTO (AP) -The Maple Leafs have signed goaltender Jonas Gustavsson to a $2.7-million, two-year contract extension.

The team announced the deal on Thursday, keeping the 25-year-old Swede from becoming a restricted free agent this summer.

Gustavsson had a tumultuous rookie season, undergoing two heart surgeries and missing time with a groin injury before recording a seven-game win streak in March.

He finished with a 16-15-9 record and a .902 save percentage and 2.87 goals-against average. He is Toronto's nominee for the Masterton Trophy for perseverance, sportsmanship and dedication to hockey.

Gustavsson is expected to join Sweden at the world championships in Germany next month.
