Giguere Signing to be Announced Today? Update: Signed

From Eric Duhatschek at the Globe & Mail,

One of the more attractive unrestricted free agents in the game, Anaheim Ducks’ goaltender J.S. Giguere, is set to go off the market later today.
Sources indicate that the Ducks have signed Giguere to a multi-year contract, guaranteeing that he will stay with the NHL team that he led to the Stanley Cup earlier in July.
GM Brian Burke told Giguere earlier this season of the negotiations: Make it as tough on me as possible. Giguere did just that – and now he’s being rewarded.

more later… hopefully. (*more from Burke on Giguere was mentioned earlier here by Kukla)

Update 4:58pm EDT
From TSN,

The Anaheim Ducks have announced the signing of goaltender Jean-Sebastien Giguere to a reported four year, $24 million contract extension.
“J.S. Giguere has been an instrumental part of this franchise for the last six years,” said Ducks Executive Vice President/General Manager Brian Burke said in a statement. “We view him as one of the top goaltenders in the NHL today, one with tremendous character and competitive fire, traits we value greatly in this organization.”
