PITTSBURGH (AP) Matt Murray's breakout performance in last year's Stanley Cup playoffs earned the Pittsburgh Penguins goaltender a hefty raise.

The 22-year-old and the team agreed to a three-year extension beginning next season that will pay Murray $3.75 million per season.

Murray helped the Penguins to the franchise's fourth championship last spring after taking over for injured Marc-Andre Fleury then held onto the job once Fleury returned from a concussion. Murray went 15-6 with a 2.08 goals against average and a .923 save percentage in the postseason. He would have been a restricted free agent at the end of this season. The new deal will keep him in the fold through 2020.
