“Carl was a great Hurricane and represented the organization with nothing but class both on and off the ice,” said Hurricanes General Manager Peter Anholt. “We wish Carl nothing but the best moving forward and are excited that he will have an opportunity in Moose Jaw to play as an overage. We thank him for all of his contributions over the last three seasons.”
Tetachuk finishes his Hurricanes career 10th all-time in games played by a goaltender (95) while finishing sixth in franchise victories with 50. He also ranks tied for fifth in franchise shutouts (5).
