Penguins re-sign goalie Murray to three-year extension


The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed goaltender Matt Murray to a three-year contract extension.

The defending Stanley Cup-winning keeper's deal begins with the 2017-18 season and runs through the 2019-20 campaign. It carries an average annual value of $3.75 million, according to a statement from the Penguins.

He became just the fourth rookie goalie in NHL history to lead his team to a championship last campaign, racking up 15 postseason wins.

Murray is out with a broken hand he suffered at the 2016 World Cup of Hockey in September while on duty as the starting goalie for Team North America.
