The Carolina Hurricanes struggled last season to stop the puck, with newcomerA Scott DarlingA posting an .888 save percentage despite his previous career total of .923. WhenA Cam WardA moved on to the Chicago Blackhawks in free agency this summer, the Hurricanes brought inA Petr MrazekA to battle with Darling and potentially give the team a bounce-back tandem of sorts. Instead, Darling suffered an injury in training camp and still has no timetable for his return. In the meantime the Hurricanes claimedA Curtis McElhinneyA off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs and have given him two starts already.

McElhinney, 35, has found a fountain of youth the last few seasons and looks as sharp as ever in net for the Hurricanes in the early going. The journeyman goaltender is 2-0 with a .930 save percentage and is starting to turn heads as a possible starting option for the entire season.
