LOS ANGELES -- Cal Petersen signed a three-year contract extension with the Los Angeles Kings worth $858,833 annually.
The contract pays two ways, at the NHL and minor league levels, for next season and one way for the following two seasons.
Petersen, 24, is considered the goalie of the future for the organization. He went 5-4-1 with a 2.60 goals-against average in his rookie season and became the first rookie Kings goalie since 1967 to make his first two NHL starts on consecutive nights. Petersen recorded his first shutout two nights later, against the St. Louis Blues.
