TheFourthPeriod.com

The New York Rangers have locked up star goaltender Henrik Lundqvist for, presumably, the rest of his NHL career, signing him to a seven-year extension.

Lundqvist, 31, will earn an average of $8.5 million, per year, over the balance of his new contract.

The three-time NHL All-Star has posted an 8-11-0 record with the Rangers so far this season, along with a 2.51 goals-against-average, a .917 save percentage, and two shutouts.

Lundqvist, a native of Are, Sweden, has a career 284-182-57 record, to date, along with a 2.26 goals-against-average, a .920 save percentage and 47 shutouts.

Drafted by the Rangers in the seventh-round (205th overall) of the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, Lundqvist's best season came in 2011-12, when he registered a 39-18-5 record with a 1.97 goals-against-average, a .930 save percentage and eight shutouts. He went on to capture the Vezina Trophy that season as the NHL's top goaltender.
