The Florida Panthers made their first two-way signing of the current free agent period as they brought goaltender Philippe Desrosiers back on a one-year contract.

Desrosiers, 25, spent all of last season with the Panthers’ previous AHL affiliate in Springfield, posting a 16-10-2 record with a 3.05 goals-against average and .916 save percentage. His 29 games played led the team as two other Panthers prospects, Chris Driedger and Samuel Montembeault, each spent time in the NHL with Florida. Desrosiers won both of his starts against the Checkers last season.

All three of Desrosiers, Driedger and Montembeault remain in the Florida organization behind established NHL No. 1 Sergei Bobrovsky, with Montembeault yet to re-sign as a restricted free agent. Ryan Bednard, who recently split his rookie season between ECHL Greenville and Springfield, also remains in the fold.

Now entering his fifth professional season, Desrosiers owns a 33-28-3 record, 2.78 GAA and .913 SV% in 72 career AHL games with Texas and Springfield. The Dallas Stars’ second-round draft choice in 2013 has also appeared in 106 career ECHL contests with Idaho and Norfolk.

In junior hockey, Desrosiers, a 6-foot-1, 198-pound native of Saint-Hyacinthe, Quebec, earned CHL Goaltender of the Year honors during a championship season with the Rimouski Oceanic in 2014-15.
