The Florida Panthers, parent club of the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage, announced Wednesday that the club has agreed to terms with goaltenders Tyler Plante and Marc Cheverie on one-year, two-way contracts.
Plante, 24, played in 35 games for Rochester (AHL) last season, going 13-17-2 with a 3.12 goals-against average and a .909 save percentage. A second-round draft pick by Florida in 2005, Plante has made 106 AHL appearances over four pro seasons, earning 36 victories and posting four shutouts.
Plante backstopped Rochester to an appearance in the Calder Cup Playoffs in 2010, where he recorded a .935 save percentage during a seven-game first-round series with Abbotsford.
Cheverie, 24, split his rookie professional season between Cincinnati (ECHL) and Rochester (AHL) last season. In 15 appearances with the Americans, Cheverie was 2-7-1 with a 3.91 goals-against average and an .888 save percentage.
A native of Cole Harbour, N.S., Cheverie was drafted by Florida in the seventh round of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.
