With Eric Comrie off to Buffalo earlier today, the Jets were in need of a backup netminder for Connor Hellebuyck. Accordingly, the team announced that they have signed goalie David Rittich, who played last season with the Nashville Predators.
It is a one-year deal worth $900,000.00.
Rittich played in 17 games for Nashville last season, winning six, losing four and having four more losses in OT/SO. He also got into one post-season game for the Preds.
He previously had two successful seasons in Calgary, in 2018-19 and 2019-20 when he put up 27 and 24 win seasons, respectively.
