The Florida Panthers re-signed goaltender Scott Clemmensen to a two-year contract before he became an unrestricted free agent, the team announced Sunday.
Terms of the deal were not announced.
"Scott is a high-character, hard-working player who is a true professional in every sense," general manager Dale Tallon said. "He stepped in and played very well in some tough games for us last season, including recording wins against Los Angeles, Vancouver, San Jose, Washington and Philadelphia. We are very pleased to have him back with our club and look forward to his continued contributions to our organization both on and off the ice."
Clemmensen, 34, was expected to be one of the most desired free agent goaltenders on the market. He started 25 games last season with a.915 save percentage.
