WINNIPEG — The Winnipeg Jets have solved their temporary goalie problem, inking free-agent Al Montoya to a contract to be Ondrej Pavelec’s backup.

Montoya, a 27-year-old native of Chicago, missed much of last season and lost his starting job with the New York Islanders because of a concussion.

Former Islanders' goaltender Al Montoya will be joining the Jets this season.
