The Pittsburgh Penguins have reportedly signed goaltender Thomas Greiss to a one-year, $1 million deal, according to the Pens’ Twitter handle.
Greiss, 28, spent last season with the Phoenix Coyotes (now Arizona), in which he compiled a record of 10-8-5 in 25 regular-season games.
Greiss has been in the league for five seasons with the San Jose Sharks and Coyotes.
The 6-foot-1, 215-pound netminder will now compete with Jeff Zatkoff for the right to backup Marc-Andre Fleury in Pittsburgh.
Unless the Pens’ front office is planning on moving Fleury or Zatkoff. Then the backup job is his.
