The Vancouver Canucks signed goaltender Spencer Martin to a two-year contract Friday.

He has a 1.59 goals-against average and .958 save percentage in three games with the Canucks this season.

“We’re pleased with the success Spencer has had this season, not only in the American Hockey League but also during his stint with Vancouver earlier this year,” Canucks general manager Patrik Allvin said in a news release. “He has been very reliable for Abbotsford, contributing greatly to their Calder Cup Playoff berth earlier this month, and has shown an ability to perform in high-pressure situations.”

Martin, 26, is 17-4-2 with three shutouts this season with the AHL’s Abbotsford Canucks.

His Jan. 21 debut with Vancouver marked his first NHL appearance in nearly five years (Feb. 1, 2017 with Colorado). He collected his first NHL win on Jan. 27 with 33 saves in a 5-1 victory against the Winnipeg Jets.

A third-round pick by the Avalanche in 2013, Martin has a 1-2-3 record with a 2.93 GAA and .916 save percentage in six career games with Colorado and Vancouver.
