The Florida Panthers added depth to their goalie group on day one of free agency, signing Alex Lyon to a 1-year, 2-way contract.
Lyon, 29, is 93-61-26 with a 2.65 goals-against average and a .913 save percentage in 179 career AHL games. Last season the netminder went 18-7-3 with a 2.16 goals-against average and a .912 save percentage in 30 games for the Chicago Wolves, earning the Harry “Hap” Holmes Award for posting the lowest team goals-against average and winning a Calder Cup.
The Minnesota native has also logged 24 NHL games over his career, including two appearances for Carolina last season.
Prior to turning pro, Lyon went 50-29-14 with a 1.88 goals-against average and a .931 save percentage in three seasons at Yale, earning back-to-back ECAC Goaltender of the Year and NCAA First All-American Team honors from 2014 to 2016 and being named a Hobey Baker Award finalist in his senior campaign.
