After another great NHL playoffs, in which he led the Anaheim Ducks to a Stanley Cup, J.S Giguere is now getting rewarded.
Today, the Ducks announced that Giguere has been signed to a four year, $24 million contract extension. This comes on the eve of July, when teams can sign free agents, and all contract negotiations are finished.
"J.S. Giguere has been an instrumental part of this franchise for the last six years," said 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."
Giguere found a groove in the playoffs last year playing like he did in 2003, when he won the Conn Smythe Trophy, despite being on the losing end of the Finals.
"I'm very excited to be staying with the Ducks," said Giguere in a statement. "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 will now lead the Ducks into next season, and try to repeat as Cup Champions.

If the Anaheim Ducks win the game tonight, who is the Finals MVP.
Daniel Alfredsson - He has had the best post-season of his career. He scored high numbers in every series, and sent the Sens to the final with his O.T goal against Buffalo. He seemed the front-runner to get the MVP coming into this series.
Teemu Selanne - Selanne, after a bad start has really heated up. He assisted in the winning goal in game 4 of the Finals, and has 15 points this post-season. What's more, he's not selfish. He has 10 assists in the playoffs.
J.S Giguere - He has found the groove he had in 2003, where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy when he was on the losing end of the Final. He shut Ottawa out in the 1st game, and is still dominating the Sens now.
