CF Montreal has awarded goaltender James Pantemis a new contract for the next two seasons, an agreement that also comes with an option year for the 2023 season.
Pantemis, 23, was loaned out in 2020 to Valor FC, of the Canadian Premier League, before playing his first three career MLS games, claiming his first victory on Oct. 17 against Miami. He made his professional debut on July 24, 2019, in the Canadian Championship, in a 1-0 shutout victory over York United.
The Montrealer joined the Impact academy in 2014 from the Lakeshore club, first playing with the Under-18 team. He signed his first professional contract in November 2017.
