Minnesota Wild Make Devan Dubnyk Extension Official

SAINT PAUL, Minn. - Minnesota Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher today announced the National Hockey League (NHL) club has re-signed goaltender Devan Dubnyk (pronounced DOOB-nihk) to a six-year contract through the 2020-21 season.

Dubnyk, 29, went 36-14-4 in 58 games during the 2014-15 season and ranked second in the NHL with both a 2.07 goals-against average (GAA) and .929 save percentage (SV%), T-4th with six shutouts and T-6th in wins. He won the 2015 Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy, was named to the NHL's Second All-Star Team, and finished third in the Vezina Trophy voting and fourth in the Hart Trophy voting. The 6-foot-6, 210-pound native of Regina, Sask., set single-season career highs in GAA, SV%, games played, consecutive starts (39), wins, shutouts, minutes, assists (2), shots faced (1,625) and saves (1,510).

Dubnyk was acquired by Minnesota from Arizona in exchange for a third-round selection in the 2015 NHL Entry Draft, on Jan. 14. After a red-eye flight, he started for Minnesota on Jan. 15 in Buffalo and became the first goalie in franchise history to earn a shutout victory in his Wild debut (7-0). He went 27-9-2 with a 1.78 GAA, .936 SV%, five shutouts and two assists in 39 starts for the Wild - including a franchise-record 38 consecutive starts that ended with a victory in Chicago that clinched Minnesota's playoff berth on April 7. In 19 road starts with Minnesota, Dubnyk was 15-2-1 with a 1.53 GAA, a .949 SV% and three shutouts. From his Wild debut on Jan. 15, he led the NHL in wins (six more than any other goalie) and ranked T-2nd in shutouts.

Dubnyk owns a career record of 97-91-26 with 2.69 GAA, a .914 SV% and 14 shutouts in 231 NHL regular season games with Edmonton, Nashville, Arizona and Minnesota. He went 4-6 with a 2.53 GAA, a .908 SV% and one shutout in 10 playoff starts with the Wild.
