Goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere carried the Anaheim Mighty Ducks to the Stanley Cup finals and the team finally rewarded him with a new contract after prolonged negotiations.

"I'm very happy to get this finally over with," he said. ``I did not want to miss any part of training camp. It's very important to have a good training camp and a good beginning to the season."

Giguere and the Ducks agreed to a four-year contract reportedly worth nearly $20 million.

"I'm expecting the same thing I did in the past, work hard and keep learning and get some experience," he said. "There's lots of room for me to get better."

"It was very important that we get him in," Ducks general manager Bryan Murray said. "Not having Jiggy here would have been disappointing. The goaltenders that have missed training camp, generally speaking, have had tough years."
