Carolina has signed Brian Boucher for two years

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with goaltender Brian Boucher (BOO-shay) on a two-year contract. The deal will pay Boucher $900,000 in 2011-12, and $1 million in 2012-13.

“Brian is a proven NHL goaltender who will be a strong complement to Cam Ward,” said Rutherford. “It was an important objective for us to sign an experienced goalie this offseason.”

Boucher, 34, played in 34 regular-season games with Philadelphia in 2010-11, posting an 18-10-4 record, a 2.42 goals-against average and a .916 save percentage. The Woonsocket, RI, native also backstopped the Flyers in nine of the team’s 11 playoff games, earning a 4-4 record, 3.13 goals-against average and a .904 save percentage.

It's a shame some of you people still can't recognize what a good backup Boucher was. He should have never been starting when it mattered, but he generally stepped up when needed.

Good backup, thanks for your service, good luck in Carolina.

Nope, I played the game since I was younger, but I didn't jump on board the Flyers wagon until 04.


**EDIT**

Just to clarify I think Boosh is a good dude, I'm glad he landed on his feet today after a rough play-offs and I hope he does well. I was a little harsh earlier, but I still think he's a poor tender.
