Carolina Hurricanes Sign Goalie to PTO

The Carolina Hurricanes are coming off a four-point week, going 2-1-0 with wins over the Philadelphia Flyers last Monday and an overtime win over the New York Islanders on Saturday; they lost on Thursday to the New York Rangers. Frederik Andersen went 1-1-0, stopping 50 of 54 shots, while Antti Raanta got the overtime win over the Islanders, allowing three goals on 25 shots. Today, they brought in Goalie Jaroslav Halak on a free agent tryout as Frederik Andersen is dealing with a medical issue and is currently undergoing evaluations. There was no other news currently, but more would come later, according to Hurricanes PR and Elliotte Friedman. The signing of Halak signifies some issues with Pyotr Kochetkov, who has struggled in his most recent call-up, going 0-3-0 in the three games he played with a .836 save percentage and a 4.33 GAA.
