The Tampa Bay Lightning re-signed goaltender Brian Elliott to a one-year contract on Friday.

The team said the contract is valued at $900,000.

Elliott, 37, is in his first season as the backup goaltender with the Lightning after signing a one-year free-agent deal in July. He has a 9-3-3 record with one shutout, a 2.23 goals-against average and .921 save percentage in 14 starts and 16 appearances.

Andrei Vasilevskiy is entrenched as the starting goalie.

The second-to-last pick of the 2003 NHL Draft by Ottawa, Elliott has played 15 seasons with the Senators, Colorado Avalanche, St. Louis Blues, Calgary Flames, Philadelphia Flyers and Lightning.

His career record is 265-158-52 with a 2.52 GAA and .911 save percentage.

A two-time All-Star, Elliott has led the NHL in save percentage twice — .940 in 2011-12 and .930 in 2015-16.
