The 30-year-old from Shorewood, Minnesota, was 7-9-2 with a 2.62 goals-against average, a .930 save percentage and one shutout in 19 games with the AHL's Iowa Wild last season. He appeared in two NHL games with Minnesota, going 1-0-0 with a 3.00 goals-against average and a .930 save percentage.
He played in four games with the Pittsburgh Penguins from 2008-10.
