This comes right from the Panthers. Have nothing really more to add...

Florida Panthers General Manager Jacques Martin announced today that the club has signed undrafted free agent G Alexander Salák to an entry-level contract. As per club policy, financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.

“Salák is a talented, young goaltender who has played very well while developing his skills and competing in Europe,” said Martin. “He will attend our development camp next week and we look forward to his continued growth and production within our organization.”

Salák 22, played in 53 games for TPS Turku (FIN) this season posting a 20-20-9 mark with a 2.40 GAA and a .923 save percentage. While playing for TPS Turku he was coached by Urpo Ylönen who has coached former TPS Turku goalies such as Miikka Kiprusoff and Antero Niittymäki
