Vlader signed a three-year extension worth $750,000 annually with Boston on Sunday.

Oddly enough, Boston announced the deal while Vlader is on the bench serving as Jaroslav Halak's backup in Game 1 against Tampa Bay. The 23-year-old Czech netminder had a terrific AHL campaign, sporting a 1.79 GAA and .936 save percentage in 25 appearances.
