Halak Gets Another Chance in the NHL



Elliotte Friedman broke the news that the Hurricanes are giving Halak another shot to play in the NHL.


There is also word that 17-year veteran Jaroslav Halak will practising with Carolina today. He's not signed — appears to be a PTO — but the Hurricanes are bringing him in to take a look.


Later, the Hurricanes confirmed it in a statement:

Goaltender Jaroslav Halak is joining the Hurricanes as a free agent tryout. Frederik Andersen is dealing with a medical issue and undergoing evaluations. An update will be provided when available, but no further comment will be issued until that time.


Remembered for his extraordinary performance during the 2010 playoff run with the Montreal Canadiens, Halak may not be at the top of his art, but he still offers the Hurricanes valuable experience and depth as they push for a championship.
