Noon Player Notes (Nov 29)
The Carolina Hurricanes have made their decision in net and Scott Darling has been tapped as the odd-man out.
The Hurricanes have been running with three goalies ever since the start of the season, when they picked up Curtis McElhinney off of waivers and Petr Mrazek still has his spot from the beginning of the year and those two will now make the duo moving forward. If Darling clears, he will be sent down to the AHL, but the Hurricanes are hoping that someone will snap up his $4.15 million annual cap hit, which goes for another two seasons after 2019.
Darling has made six appearances this season, posting 2 wins and 4 points, which has hindered Ryan's team in the hockey pool this season, but a move, with teams looking for goalies, has to be somewhat interesting. If someone claims Darling, it could be like Ryan getting a new goalie in this Waiver Draft.
