BOSTON, MA - Boston Bruins General Manager Peter Chiarelli announced today that the club has signed goaltender Tuukka Rask to a two-year contract extension through the 2011-12 season. Chiarelli will be available to the media Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. in the Will McDonough Press Room at the TD Garden, while Rask will be available following Thursdays game against Montreal in the Bruins locker room.

The 22-year-old Rask has appeared in nine NHL games in his career - all with the Bruins - and has registered a 5-2-2 record, 2.43 Goals Against Average, .917 save percentage and two shutouts. He has played in four games this year for the Bruins and has posted a 2-1-1 record, 2.41 GAA and .920 save percentage. He is coming off a 2-0 shutout win of the Edmonton Oilers in his last start on October 31.

Rask made his NHL debut for the Bruins on November 20, 2007 against the Toronto Maple Leafs and recorded his first NHL victory in that game. He spent the majority of the last two seasons in the American Hockey League with the Providence Bruins where he had a 60-33-6 record and five shutouts in 102 appearances. He opened the season on an NHL roster for the first time in his career this year." -Official Bruins Press Release

This is a great deal he is the future. He will be hopefully playing when Tim Thomas is retired. So long they didnt over pay him like Lucic.
