Rangers Sign Louis Domingue to Contract Extension

Earlier this month, the New York Rangers signed goaltender Jonathan Quick to a contract extension. Now, they are keeping another one of their goalies around, as they have signed Louis Domingue to a one-year, $775,000 contract extension. 

Domingue, 32, has spent the majority of this down in the AHL with the Hartford Wolf Pack. He has been quite effective in the AHL, as he has a 13-7-4 record to go along with a .910 SV% and a 2.65 GAA. He also played wonderfully in his lone start of the season with the Rangers, as he saved 25 out of 26 shots against the Minnesota Wild on Nov. 9.

Domingue has proven to be an effective AHL starter for the Rangers organization and is good veteran option to be their third-string goalie. Because of this, it is not too surprising to hear that they are keeping him around for another season. It also does not hurt that he is a good mentor for the Rangers' prospects down in the AHL.

Domingue has appeared in 143 career NHL games split between the Arizona Coyotes, Tampa Bay Lightning, New Jersey Devils, Vancouver Canucks, Calgary Flames, Pittsburgh Penguins, and Rangers, where he has a 60-60-10 record, a 3.02 GAA, and a .905 SV%.
