Bryzgalov was signed earlier this month after the Philadelphia Flyers bought out his contract over the summer.
The 33-year-old, who has also played for the Anaheim Ducks and Phoenix Coyotes, has a career record of 208-149-45 in 426 appearances with a 2.55 goals-against average, .913 save percentage and 30 shutouts.
