The Arizona Coyotes secured some goaltending depth for next season by re-signing free agent goalie Louis Domingue to a multi-year contract, the team announced Monday.

"Louis had a breakthrough season last year and we are confident that he and (goalie Mike Smith) will form a great tandem for us," Coyotes general manager John Chayka said in a statement.
Domingue had a .911 save percentage and 2.75 goals allowed average in 39 games as a rookie last season. He recorded a pair of shutouts, set a Coyotes rookie goaltending record with 15 wins, and was the NHL Rookie of the Month in January.
Domingue, a fifth-round pick by the Coyotes in 2010, will likely split time in net with the 34-year-old Smith this season. Smith recorded a .916 goals allowed average and a 2.63 goals allowed average last season but missed nearly three months of the season due to injury.
