Another goalie! This time, it's a signing to solidify the crease in Glens Falls, however, not Philadelphia.

Danis, a 32-year-old minor-league veteran with just 53 NHL games under his belt, will join the organization and play out the season with the Adirondack Phantoms. Danis has played the last two seasons with the Oilers' AHL affiliate in Oklahoma City. His NHL experience has come with Montreal, the Islanders, New Jersey and Edmonton.

He'll join 24-year-old Cal Heeter in a tandem in the Phantoms net, and would likely be the first option in case one of Ray Emery or Steve Mason goes down with an injury in Philly.
