Former Carolina Hurricanes goaltending prospect John Muse has been signed by the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL. In addition, Andreas Nodl has been signed by Lausanne of the NLA in Switzerland.

Muse’s first full professional season during the 2011-2012 season saw him spending time in both the ECHL and AHL, recording 15 games in Charlotte and 25 in Florida, where he shared netminding duties with Pat Nagle. On June 7, 2012, Muse was signed to his first NHL contract with the Everblades parent affiliate, the Carolina Hurricanes, on a one-year contract. Last season, he was named Kelly Cup MVP in 2012 when he led the Florida Everblades to their first title. Muse was 11-2 in the Kelly Cup playoffs with a 1.78 goals-against average in 13 games.

Nodl was drafted in the second round, 39th overall, of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft by the Philadelphia Flyers. On November 29, 2011, he was waived by the Flyers after spending time between the NHL and AHL and was picked up by the Hurricanes. He’s a veteran of 183 NHL games and should get another shot in the NHL at some point. During his time with the Hurricanes, he was considered more of a defensive forward than an offensive one, leading him to be placed in roles that he didn’t fulfill all too well.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
