Coming into the season, the story was whether or not Jeff Zatkoff would even be able to hold the fort until Tomas Vokoun came back from injury.
Retirement talks from Vokoun and six straight wins from Zatkoff has ended all of that. He inked a two year extension for the Penguins reportedly worth $600,000 per year which will take into effect next season.
Also, it’s a one way contract so the Pens are obviously committed to him as the backup long term.
Zatkoff has a record of 6-2 this season with a 2.46 GAA and .912 save percentage.
