Ducks Resign Giguere

The Anaheim Ducks announced Thursday that they have signed goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere to a multi-year contract extension. Per club policy, financial terms were not disclosed.

 

"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. "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, 30 (5/16/77), led the Ducks to the 2007 Stanley Cup Championship, posting a 13-4 record in the playoffs. He appeared in 18 post-season games overall during the championship run, recording a 1.97 goals-against average (GAA) and .922 save percentage (SV%).

"I'm very excited to be staying with the Ducks," said Giguere. "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."

 

A native of Montreal, Quebec, Giguere played in 56 regular season games in 2006-2007, posting a 36-10-8 record, 2.26 GAA and .918 SV%. His 36 wins set a new franchise record and career high, while his 10 regulation losses were the fewest of any NHL goaltender to play in 50+ games. 

 

Giguere was acquired by Anaheim from Calgary in exchange for a second round pick in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft on June 10, 2000. He played in his first 21 playoff games in 2003, leading the Ducks to within one victory of the Stanley Cup title and winning the Conn Smythe Trophy (playoff MVP). He has the longest playoff overtime streak in NHL history, going the first 170:03 of his career without giving up a goal. The streak began on April 10, 2003 @ Detroit (Game 1 of Conference Quarterfinals) before finally being snapped on April 27, 2006 vs. Vancouver (Game 2 of Conference Semifinals).

 

"Last year, I didn't really think I was going to come back," Giguere said. "I knew there was a good chance for me to get traded. I came into the season and just wanted to be me. Altogether, in my private life and in hockey, it was an amazing year. I'm very excited to have another opportunity to play here."
