Phoenix Coyotes sign free agent goaltender Thomas Greiss

PHOENIX — The Phoenix Coyotes reportedly signed free agent goaltender Thomas Greiss to a one-year deal on Thursday.

TSN’s Darren Dreger reported that the deal is worth $750,000.

“We are pleased to sign Thomas to a one-year contract,” said Phoenix Coyotes General Manager Don Maloney in a press release. “Thomas is a big, athletic and aggressive goaltender who has tremendous upside. We are excited to have him work with Sean Burke and continue his development.”

Greiss was 1-4 in five starts last season with the San Jose Sharks. He posted a 2.53 goals-against average and .915 save percentage in that time.

In his career, Greiss has posed a 2.52 GAA and .912 save percentage.

Greiss will replace Jason LaBarbera, who was signed by the Edmonton Oilers on Thursday, as the Coyotes’ backup netminder for Mike Smith.
