Flyers sign free agent goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin to one-year deal

PHILADELPHIA – Free agent goaltender Jean-Sebastien Aubin has signed a one-year contract with the Philadelphia Flyers, the club announced Thursday.

The five-foot-11,180-pound netminder appeared in 19 regular season games for the Los Angeles Kings last season, posting a 5-6-1 record and 3.19 goals-against average.

“Jean-Sebastien is a veteran goalie with quality NHL experience,” said GM Paul Holmgren in a statement. “We feel his experience, along with his ability as a goaltender, makes him an ideal fit for our organization.”

Aubin also appeared in 12 AHL games last season, compiling a 6-4-0 record and 2.02 GAA with the Manchester Monarchs and Portland Pirates. He had a 9-3 record and 2.30 GAA in 12 playoff games as Portland advanced to the AHL’s Eastern Conference Finals.

“I’m happy to come to a great organization like the Flyers,” said Aubin, 31. “I know a lot of the guys on the team. They have a lot of faith in me and it is a really good fit for me to come here.”

In 218 career NHL regular season games over nine seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins (1998-99 through 2003-04), the Toronto Maple Leafs (2005-06 and 2006-07) and the Kings (2007-08), Aubin has compiled an 80-83-16 record, 2.93 GAA and seven shutouts.
