EDMONTON - The Edmonton Oilers have agreed to terms with goaltender Ben Scrivens on a two-year contract extension.

The Spruce Grove, Alta., native has posted a 3-4-0 record including one shutout since being acquired by the Oilers in a trade with the Los Angeles Kings on January 15th.

The 27-year old has posted a 10-9-4 record with Edmonton and the Kings, including four shutouts and a league leading .934 save percentage.

"It's a great opportunity," Scrivens said. "Now the real work begins... It's great to be here in Edmonton playing at home."

He made an immediate impact when acquired by his hometown team, making 59 saves in a 3-0 win over the San Jose Sharks on Jan. 29.

That set an NHL record for most saves in a regular-season shutout.

The six-foot-two, 193-pound goaltender has a record of 21-23-6 and six shutouts over three NHL seasons with Toronto, Los Angeles and Edmonton.

In four years at Cornell University, Scrivens appeared in 117 games posting a record of 65-37-13, a 1.93 goals against average, and 19 shutouts.
