The Lightning have agreed to terms with pending free agent goaltender Dwayne Roloson, Tampa Bay general manager Steve Yzerman confirmed Wednesday.
The deal for Roloson was reported by TSN to be a one-year deal worth $3 million. The salary matches the amount Roloson earned last season when he was acquired from the New York Islanders on New Year’s Day. The 41-year-old, who will turn 42 just after the regular season begins, went 18-12-4 with a 2.56 goals against average and .912 save percentage in 34 appearances during the regular season with Tampa Bay.
In the postseason, his first playoffs since leading Edmonton to the Stanley Cup Final in 2006, Roloson went 10-5 with a 2.51 goals against average and .924 save percentage in 17 games including a shutout in Game 7 against Pittsburgh to cap off a rally from down 3-1 in the first round of the playoffs.
