Lightning goalie Ben Bishop signed a two-year extension with the team on Saturday, Tampa Bay announced via its website.

Pierre LeBrun of ESPN tweeted that the deal is for $11.9 million overall, or $5.95 each season. The 27-year-old had posted a 37-14-7 record in 63 games last season. He also had a .924 save percentage and a 2.23 goals-against average.

Bishop had previously played for the Senators and Blues before moving to Tampa Bay in April 2013. He has since set Lightning single-season records for wins, save percentage and goals-against average.
