   When the Florida Panthers lost goalies Al Montoya and Roberto Luongo to injuries in the same game March 2015, they had to recall Dan Ellis from the AHL and Sam Brittain from the ECHL. Brittain dressed as backup goalie to Ellis. Brittain spent six games in the NHL before Luongo was ready to return.

   The Florida Panthers lost goalie Roberto Luongo to injury early 2017. Instead of recalling the next goalie on their depth chard, Reto Berra, the Panthers opted to recall Britain from their ECHL affiliate because Berra, who was playing in the AHL, was much further away. It was thus travel logistics that saw Brittain get his second stint in the NHL with Florida. 

   Brittain was drafted by the Panthers in 2010 and then spent the next four seasons at the University of Denver. He was a first team All-Star and All-American in his last season of college. July, 2014 Brittain signed a three-year, entry-level contract with the Panthers.
