The Pittsburgh Penguins re-signed goaltender Casey DeSmith to a two-year contract worth $1.8 million per season, the team announced Tuesday.

DeSmith, 30, was one of few goaltenders set to hit the unrestricted free agent market this offseason.

He’s spent his entire four-year career with the Penguins, posting a .915 save percentage in 96 appearances primarily as a backup.

The Penguins have seven remaining UFAs on their roster, most notably superstars and franchise icons Evgeni Malkin and Kris Letang. Pittsburgh has roughly $21 million in cap space after DeSmith’s new deal, according to Cap Friendly.
