The Colorado Avalanche have reached an agreement on Monday to extend the contract of Jean-Sebastien Giguere for one year, and the extension is reportedly worth $1.5 million for the 35-year-old goalie. According to CapGeek.com, Giguere has a no-move clause in the deal.
Though aging, Giguere went 15-11-3 last year in his first season with the Avalanche, and he recorded a save percentage of .919 in 30 starts. He also had a goals-against average of 2.27 and had two shutouts on the season.
The Montreal, Quebec, native split time at goalie with 24-year-old Semyon Varlamov for Colorado in 2011-12.
Giguere has a career record of 246-206-45 in his 14 NHL seasons, most of which were spent with the Anaheim Ducks. The experienced vet has played in 557 games in his career with 524 starts and 36 shutouts to his name. Drafted 13th by the Carolina Hurricanes in 1995, he's also played for the Calgary Flames and Toronto Maple Leafs.
