Ducks Sign Viktor Fasth to a Two Year Extension

USATSI_8383487_154224518_lowresThe 30-year old rookie, Viktor Fasth, is off to a perfect start this season. Due to his age he’s not eligible for the Calder trophy, but he’s turning heads and opening up wallets.

After only nine NHL games, eight starts, the Anaheim Ducks have signed Fasth to a two-year contract extension, and he didn’t come cheap. He’ll get $2.4 million next season, and $3.4 million in 2014-15. That’s $5.8 million total, and a $2.9 million salary cap hit. Not a bad haul for eight starts. Fasth is making $1 million this year, with the same cap hit.

“Viktor has proven himself not only this year in the NHL, but the previous two seasons as the top goaltender in Sweden,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Bob Murray. “We are pleased to be able to keep him and feel fortunate to have two top NHL goaltenders going forward.”

Fasth owns a 8-0-0 record with a 1.78 goals-against average and a .933 save percentage. He’s one of three goaltenders to start their NHL career to win their first eight or more career decisions. Ray Emery went 9-0-0 with the Ottawa Senators from 2003 to 2005 and Bob Froese went 8-0-0 with the Philadelphia Flyers in 1983.

This is Fasth’s first year playing in North America. He played three games with the Norfolk Admirals of the AHL before making his debut with the Ducks. He spent the start of career playing in Sweden.

He won the Elitserien Goalie of the Year last season and in 2010-11. Fasth won a silver medal at the 2010-11 World Championships, was named to the All-Star Team, and won the award for Best Goaltender and MVP.

The Ducks now have $6.9 million in salary, $7.4 million cap number, committed to their goaltending duo for next season. The 31-year old Jonas Hiller will become an unrestricted free agent after next season, and may now find himself on the trade block.
