The Tampa Bay Lightning have re-signed goalie Dwayne Roloson to a one-year deal worth $3 million.

The 41-year-old netminder enjoyed a renaissance this spring with some strong play to backstop the Lightning to an appearance in the Eastern Conference Final.

Roloson split his time last season between the New York Islanders and the Lightning, posting a combined 24-25-5 record with four shutouts and a 2.59 goals against average. He then excelled during Tampa Bay's playoff run with a 10-6 record and a .924 save percentage during series victories over Pittsburgh and Washington. The Lightning eventually lost in seven games to the eventual Stanley Cup champion Boston Bruins.

The veteran of 13 NHL seasons began his career with Calgary before moving onto Buffalo, Minnesota, Edmonton, and the Islanders before he was traded to the Lightning on Jan. 1 this year.

Roloson also earned $3 million last season in the final season of a two-year, $5 million contract. He was eligible to become an unrestricted free agent this Friday had he not been locked up by Tampa Bay.
