 ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) -Goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere has decided to stay with the Stanley Cup champion Anaheim Ducks, signing a 4-year, $24 million contract on Thursday.
``J.S. Giguere has been an instrumental part of this franchise for the last six years,'' Ducks executive vice president-general manager Brian Burke said in a statement. ``We view him as one of the top goaltenders in the NHL today, one with tremendous character and competitive fire, traits we value greatly in this organization.''
The 30-year-old Giguere had a 13-4 record in the playoffs while appearing in 18 postseason games. He had a 1.97 goals-against average and a .922 save percentage.
``I'm very excited to be staying with the Ducks,'' said Giguere, who earned $3.99 million this season. ``Orange County has been a great place for my family over the last six years, and we are grateful to the entire organization for the opportunity to stay here.''
Giguere had a 36-10-8 record, a 2.26 goals-against average and a .918 save percentage in 56 regular-season games. His 36 wins were a career best and set a new franchise record, and his 10 regulation losses were the fewest of any NHL goalie who played in 50 or more games.
The Ducks beat the Ottawa Senators in five games in the Stanley Cup finals. They also reached the finals in 2003, losing to the New Jersey Devils in seven games.
Giguere won the Conn Smythe Trophy as the most valuable player in the 2003 playoffs after playing in the first 21 postseason games of his career.
