Pittsburgh, PA ( – Just prior to their matinee matchup with
the Calgary Flames, the Pittsburgh Penguins announced a two-year contract
extension for backup goaltender Jeff Zatkoff.

The deal, which begins next season, holds an average annual value of $600,000
per year.

The 26-year-old was recalled from the American Hockey League after Tomas
Vokoun was sidelined with blood clots in his hip, and has posted a 6-2-0
record, 2.46 goals-against average and one shutout in eight appearances.
