The SportsXchange

The Edmonton Oilers signed goaltender Ben Scrivens to a two-year contract extension Monday.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but TSN reported that the deal is worth more than $2 million per season.

Scrivens is 10-9-4 in 26 games this season with the Los Angeles Kings and Oilers. He leads the league with a .934 save percentage and is third with a 2.02 goals-against average with four shutouts.

Scrivens was sent from the Toronto Maple Leafs to the Kings in the offseason as part of the Jonathan Bernier trade. The Oilers acquired him from the Kings in mid-January for a third-round pick in this year's draft.

Scrivens set an NHL record for saves in a shutout with 59 against the San Jose Sharks in his third start with the Oilers.

The 27-year-old is 21-23-6 with a 2.49 goals-against average, .921 save percentage and six shutouts in his NHL career.
