Pittsburgh Penguins Sign Louis Domingue

The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed Louis Domingue to a one-year, two-way contract. It will pay him. $750,000 at the NHL level and $300,000 in the minors.

Over the last handful of seasons, Domingue has been a third-string goaltender. This will likely continue with the Penguins, as they have Tristan Jarry and Casey DeSmith as their one-two punch at the NHL level. However, having Domingue as insurance is not a bad thing at all. 

Domingue spent last season with the Calgary Flames, but only appeared in one game. In it, he lost and had an .870 SV%. He also suited up in three games with the Stockton Heat, where he went 0-2-1 and had an .859 SV%. 

Domingue's best year in the NHL came during the 2018-19 season. In 26 games with the Tampa Bay Lightning, he sported a 21-5-0 record and .908 SV%. 

All in all, this is just a depth move made by Pittsburgh. Domingue may get some games in the NHL if injuries occur in net, but other than that, expect to see him in Wilkes-Barre/Scranton this upcoming season.
