Just days after signing Carey Price to an $84-million contract extension, the Montreal Canadiens have re-signed another one of their goaltenders on Thursday.

The club agreed to terms on a one-year, two contract with Charlie Lindgren.

The 23-year-old signed with the Canadiens during the 2015-16 season after spending three years in the NCAA with St. Cloud State.

Last season, he spent most of the year as the starting goalie with Montreal’s AHL affiliate in St. John’s, but he also saw action in two NHL games.

Lindgren was a perfect 2-0 in his two starts with the Habs. He posted a 1.48 goals-against-average and a .949 save percentage in victories over Florida and Detroit.

He’ll go into training camp as the third goalie on the depth chart behind Price and Al Montoya.
