The Florida Panthers season wrapped up more than a month ago, but report cards for the 2021 campaign are now being mailed home.
Today, we look at Florida’s goalies and how they graded out.
In the 56-game compressed schedule, it is mildly surprising that Florida only used three goalies during the 2021 season.
While Philippe Desrosiers spent the entire season on the taxi squad and Sam Montembeault did come up toward the end, only Sergei Bobrovsky, Chris Driedger and Spencer Knight played. Desrosiers and Montembeault did dress as backups, however.
Two of those starting goalies will be back.
Florida Hockey Now can confirm that Driedger will be signing with the expansion Seattle Kraken for the coming season.
It is not known whether Driedger will officially sign with Seattle before Wednesday’s expansion draft, but he is signing with Seattle.
How the Panthers work the goalie situation moving forward will definitely be something worth looking out for.
