Montreal Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin continues to dominate the offseason. Last month the Habs acquired goaltender Jake Allen from the St. Louis Blues, and many wondered if it would be just a one-year commitment as Allen is slated to make over 4 million dollars next season. Today General Manager Biceps announced the team it has extended Allen’s contract for an additional two-years.

The deal will see Jake Allen earn an average of 2.8 million dollars a season after next season and gives the Les Habitants one of the best goalie tandems in the National Hockey League. Last season Allen posted a .927 save% and 2.15 goals-against average. Allen ended up taking the starting job from Jordan Binnington in the playoffs and put up an impressive .935 save% and 1.89 goals-against average. This offseason belongs to big daddy Bergy and those massive biceps. What a contract.
