Panthers continue push for depth in net, sign G Houser to entry level deal

Kirill Kabanov #77 of the Shawinigan Cataractes collides with goaltender Michael Houser #29 of the London Knights during a 2012 MasterCard Memorial Cup game at Bionest Centre, May 27 in Shawinigan, Quebec.

The Florida Panthers have come to terms with CHL Goaltender of the Year Michael Houser, who helped his London Knights win the OHL championship en route to an appearance in the 2012 Memorial Cup Final. Houser was dubbed OHL Goaltender of the Year along with Most Outstanding Player and OHL First All-Star Team honors. The Wexford, Pennsylvania native was also named to the CHL Memorial Cup All-Star Team. A must-read Q & A with the 19 year-old courtesy of Knights Outright's John Matisz is well worth a peek.
