The Penguins announced another contract signing today, where they signed a young goalie from Sweden to a 2-year deal.

Goaltender Filip Larsson inked a 2-year deal with the Pittsburgh Penguins today for an AAV of $775k, per the teams official social media.



The Penguins have signed goaltender Filip Larsson to a two-year contract.

The contract runs through the 2025.26 season and carries an average annual value of $775,000 at the NHL level.





Larsson, 25, played this season with Leksands IF of the Swedish Hockey League, Sweden's top professional league, posting a 19-9-0 record, 1.93 goals-against average, .920 save percentage, and a league-leading five shutouts in 28 games played.

Impressive stats for the 25 year old goalie.

He will likely spend the year with Wilkes Barre, but will also help to bolster the Penguins goaltending depth overall.

Larsson was originally a 6th round draft pick to the Detroit Red Wings in 2016, and after a fantastic performance in his home country he has been one of the highest touted goaltending free agents out of Europe.



One of the most highly coveted European free agents, Filip Larsson, has signed with the Pittsburgh Penguins

Best of luck to Filip in the black and gold!
