Today, the Tampa Bay Lightning retained the services of backup goalie Peter Budaj by giving him a two-year deal worth $2.05MM, according to Bob McKenzie of TSN.
McKenzie notes that the deal will become official on Thursday.
Furthermore, the Lightning have one of the better goalie duos in Vasy and Budaj. Actually, Budaj is one of the better backup goalies in hockey today.
Finally, Budaj finished last season with a winning record of 30-21 in 60 games, which most of his wins came from his time with the Los Angels Kings. He was part of the trade that included Ben Bishop.
Note: Budaj finished with a .915 save percentage and 2.18 GAA.
