Osgood signs three-year extension

The announcement that the Red Wings will make this morning will be that they've signed goalie Chris Osgood, 35, to a three-year extension. TSN reports that the contract will average nearly $1.5 million per season.
Osgood has had a stellar season for the Red Wings. He leads the NHL in goals-against average (1.68), is second in save percentage (.932) and is fifth in wins (19). He's currently alternating starts with Dominik Hasek.
Osgood's last win moved him into a tie with Rogie Vachon for 15th on the NHL's all-time list.
"Chris has a tremendous career record as an NHL goaltender and his performance this season places him as one of the top goalies in the game today," said Detroit general manager Ken Holland. "He’s been a big part of our success in every season he has been with the Wings and we’re very happy to have him signed for an additional three seasons."
