The deal is worth $660,000 at the NHL level or $65,000 at the AHL level.
The 23-year-old restricted free agent played for the Milwaukee Admirals in the American Hockey League last season. He was second in the league in wins (31) and shutouts (five) and posted a 2.17 goals-against average.
He was selected by Nashville in the second round (No. 54) of the 2007 NHL Draft.
It's cool when you think about how many great American players have played the game and the two players that were at that 18-game point streak and what they've done in their careers. It's pretty cool right now, but it was kind of overshadowed by the loss.
