The Tennesean reports that Vokoun, who will earn $2.28 million this season under the terms of his current contract, has inked a new four-year deal that will kick-in after this season ends. Financial terms were not reported.

Vokoun set a franchise mark with 36 wins last season, helped by a 2.67 goals against average and a .919 save percentage. He was fourth in Vezina Trophy voting for the league’s top goaltender.

“We’d said that we’d look into (a new contract) once we got the health issues resolved,” Vokoun told the Tennesean. “We wanted to get it done before the start of the season. With all the changes on the team, I’m just happy to be staying.”

This is great news for the Predators, who could become a fantastic team to challenge Detroit’s supremacy, depending on Arnott.
