Hurricanes Sign Goaltender

The Hurricanes have added to their goaltending depth, as they have signed Zach Sawchenko to a one-year, two-way contract. 

Sawchenko was recently let go by the Sharks, but now he will be getting a chance with the Hurricanes organization. It isn't too surprising to see Carolina bring in another goalie, as they of course dealt with the injury bug at that position during the playoffs. Thus, bringing in another goalie with some NHL experience isn't a bad idea at all. 

Sawchenko's experience is rather limited, however. In seven career games, he has a 1-2-1 record and .901 SV%. It will be intriguing to see if he gets the chance to build on these stats in 2022-23 with Carolina.
