(NLL) - The Rochester Knighthawks re-signed goaltender Angus Goodleaf to a two-year deal on Tuesday.

The 26-year-old enters his second season with the Knighthawks after winning the first Champion's Cup of his career in May.

"I am excited and ready to get training camp started," said Goodleaf. "Winning my first Champion's Cup was definitely an experience I will never forget."

In 2013, he finished the season with a 0.00 goals-against average and a 1.000 save percentage, backing up National Lacrosse League Goaltender of the Year Matt Vinc. The NLL title was the second championship in four seasons for Goodleaf, who won the 2010 Mann Cup with the Peterborough Lakers. He returns to the Knighthawks after a stellar summer in which he recorded an 8-1 record and a 7.89 goals-against average with the Senior "B" Six Nations Rivermen.

"I met a lot of great players and great people within the Knighthawks' organization," said Goodleaf. "I am grateful for the opportunity to play for such a great team."

The NLL veteran has appeared in 50 games in his career and enters the 2014 season with a 10.86 goals-against average and .767 save percentage. He spent his first three seasons with the Buffalo Bandits.
