It took a little longer than he may have hoped, but Curtis Joseph is heading back to the NHL.
Sources told ESPN The Magazine's E.J. Hradek that the veteran goaltender has signed a deal with the Calgary Flames. Details surrounding the deal were not disclosed.
Joseph became a free agent this summer after the Phoenix Coyotes decided not to re-sign him. Joseph continued to work out in the Toronto area before Joseph helped Team Canada win the Spengler Cup in Switzerland last month.
TSN reported Sunday that Joseph narrowed his list of teams to the Maple Leafs, Flames, Rangers and Sharks, but San Jose was no longer interested, according to The San Jose Mercury News.
