This will be one of those signings that will go under the radar, but addresses a need, and has the low-risk / high-potential type payoff we’ve come to expect from Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. Ellis was signed to an AHL contract with the Charlotte Checkers during the lockout, and he’s performed well enough (that I believe everyone felt) once the lockout ended the Hurricanes would extend a contract to him.


. According to Jim Rutherford, Dan Ellis is slated to be the #2 goaltender for the Carolina Hurricanes.

“Dan is an experienced netminder who has had good years in the NHL, and played well for Charlotte this season. We feel it is important to have a veteran goalie to partner with Cam during the compressed season.” – Hurricanes General Manager Jim Rutherford


In my opinion I probably would have went with Justin Peters (as I’ve said before), but I can’t disagree with the reasons of going with Ellis.

I was surprised to hear last night that it was going to be Ellis driving over from Charlotte to Raleigh to back up Cam instead of Peters this season.

Maybe they think because of the shortened season Peters would benefit more in the A?
