Corey Crawford is having one great summer. First, the netminder led the Chicago Blackhawks to their second NHL title in four seasons, disposing of the Bruins in six games. Then he welcomed the Stanley Cup to his hometown of Montreal Monday, and joined the team for the announcement of a six-year contract extension that officially stamps his arrival as one of the league’s top goaltenders. Crawford, 28, went 16-7 with an NHL-best 1.84 goals-against average while starting every playoff game for Chicago this year. The extension is reportedly worth $36 million and runs through the 2019-20 season.
