One day after re-signing starting goalie Dwayne Roloson to a one-year deal, Tampa Bay Lightning General Manager Steve Yzerman has reportedly inked goalie Mathieu Garon to a two-year contract.

Garon, who spent the last two seasons with the Columbus Blue Jackets, went 10-14-6 with a 2.72 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in 2010-11. According to TSN, Garon's deal is worth $2.6 million total.

The 33-year-old veteran backup, who has played 71 games over the last two campaigns, has spent 10 seasons in the League. In addition to the Blue Jackets, Garon also spent time with the Montreal Canadiens, Los Angeles Kings, Edmonton Oilers and Pittsburgh Penguins.

In 275 career games, he sports a 2.82 GAA and .904 save percentage.

Quote of the Day

He stuck his neck out there for us. I don't know what's wrong with him, but you see he was in pain. But he went back in there. He's a tough guy. You've got to give him credit for helping the boys out.
