Jacob Markstrom has inked a three-year, $11.01 million contract extension with the Vancouver Canucks.
Markstrom still has a season left on his two-year, $3.1 million deal, so this new contract will secure his services through 2019.20. Markstrom and Ryan Miller will continue to split the goaltending duties next season, but then Miller's contract will be up and Markstrom will likely emerge as the team's clear cut starter. "Jacob is a talented, competitive goaltender with size and a proven ability to make big saves at crucial moments in a game," said Canucks GM Jim Benning. "He set career highs in several statistical categories last season and two years ago led the Comets to their first Calder Cup Final. He’s motivated and wants to help his team win. We’re excited to have Jacob competing in a Canucks uniform for years to come." He had a 2.73 GAA and .915 save percentage in 32 games last season. Jul 7 - 3:41 PM
