Carlton young gun Matthew Kreuzer has signed a new two-year contract with the AFL club.

The deal means the 20-year-old ruckman will be with the Blues at least until the end of the 2012 season.

Kreuzer was the No.1 pick in the 2007 draft and he has not missed a senior games since his AFL debut in round three, 2008.

He has played 43 matches and finished fifth last year in the club's best and fairest award.

"He is an outstanding young man and has shown in his first two years in the AFL, where he has had an immediate impact at Carlton and in the competition, that he has a sensational career in front of him," said Carlton football manager Steven Icke.

Kreuzer's re-signing is some welcome good news for Carlton, who were spared AFL sanctions after the players' now-notorious "booze cruise" in December.

"Obviously the improvement on the field and playing a final last year was great and I look forward to playing more finals and enjoying success with everyone at Carlton," Kreuzer said in a club statement.
