DETROIT (AP) -Red Wings goalie Chris Osgood, off to a fast start this season, has signed a three-year extension with the team.
The 35-year-old Osgood leads the NHL in both goals-against average (1.68) and save percentage (.932), and has a 19-2-1 record in 22 appearances. Both losses were 3-2 decisions. No other NHL goaltender with at least 10 appearances has only two regulation losses.
``Chris has a tremendous career record as an NHL goaltender and his performance this season places him as one of the top goalies in the game today,'' Red Wings general manager Ken Holland said in a release Wednesday.
The deal runs through the 2010-2011 season.
Osgood has 355 victories, third among active goaltenders and tied with Rogie Vachon for 15th on the career list. He has shared netminding duties this season with Dominik Hasek, who has a 14-6-2 record for the NHL-leading Red Wings.
Detroit originally drafted Osgood in the third round (54th overall) of the 1991 NHL draft. The New York Islanders claimed him in the waiver draft in September 2001 and traded him to St. Louis in 2003.
Osgood returned to Detroit in August 2005 when the Wings signed him as a free agent.
