Red Wings sign goalie Gustavsson

Jimmy Howard will have a new backup in Detroit.

Former Toronto Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson has signed a two-year, $3 million contract with the Red Wings.

Gustavsson came to Toronto as a heralded unrestricted free agent out of Sweden in 2009. He went 39-45-15 in 107 appearances over three seasons. Gustavsson posted a 2.98 goals-against average and .900 save percentage.

The Leafs traded Gustavsson's negotiating rights to Winnipeg last weekend for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2013 NHL Draft, but the sides never struck a deal.

The Red Wings used Ty Conklin and Joey MacDonald as backups to Howard last season. Howard started 57 games but was injured at various points of the season.

It will be interesting if Gustavsson for some reason gets the start in the 2012 NHL Winter Classic at Michigan Stadium. The Red Wings' opponent is the Maple Leafs.

Clemmensen signs two-year contract with Panthers

The Florida Panthers secured the services of a goaltender Sunday, but it wasn't Roberto Luongo.

Florida and Scott Clemmensen have agreed to a two-year contract extension, the team announced. He played in 30 games for the Panthers last season, posting a 14-6-6 record with a .913 save percentage and 2.57 goals-against average. He also appeared in three of Florida's seven playoff games.

“Scott is a high-character, hard-working player who is a true professional in every sense,” general manager Dale Tallon said on the team's website. “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.”

Jose Theodore
, who was Florida's No. 1 goalie last season, has one year left on his contract. The Panthers reportedly have been one of the teams interested in acquiring Luongo from Vancouver, who could be traded by the Canucks this offseason after sitting in favor of Cory Schneider at the end of their first-round playoff series against Los Angeles.
