The Florida Panthers announced today that they’ve agreed to terms on a three-year, entry-level contract with goalie Samuel Montembeault.

Montembeault, 19, was drafted 77th overall in 2015, among the first netminders to be taken that year. According to Hockey’s Future, he’s the Panthers’ top goalie prospect.

Florida, of course, already has a pretty solid goalie in Roberto Luongo, the 37-year-old who still has a couple of years of good money left on his back-diving contract.

In the meantime, the Panthers can be patient while Montembeault — who idolized Luongo growing up in Quebec — develops.
