The Philadelphia Flyers have signed a new starting goaltender after losing Steve Mason by inking Brian Elliott to a 2-year deal.

Brian Elliott has signed a two-year deal worth $5.5 million total, or $2.75 million against the salary cap.

Elliott spent last season with the Calgary Flames after being acquired by the St. Louis Blues last offseason. The 32-year-old finished with a 2.55 goals against average and .910 save percentage in 49 regular season games for the Flames, and a 3.88 GAA and .880 SV% in four postseason games.

Elliott, whose largest workload came in 2009-10 and 2010-11 when he played 55 games in each season, has more recently been used as part of a tandem with the Blues and Flames. He won the William M. Jennings Trophy in 2011-12 with a 1.56 GAA in 38 games.
