Red and Black Hockey

After the Canes finished signing their own UFAs both at the NHL and AHL levels, things have gotten kind of slow around here. Yesterday, the Charlotte Checkers announced that goaltender John Muse has signed a two-way American League contract.
There’s really not much to see here.
Muse won two national championships (2008, 2010) with the Boston College Eagles. He played and was the clear #1 goalie all four seasons, and set school records for games played and saves. At BC, he played alongside Hurricanes 2009 second round draft pick, defenseman Brian Dumoulin. After completing his fourth season this past spring, Muse signed an amateur tryout contract with the Portland Pirates (then affiliated with Buffalo). He appeared in one game, earning a shootout win over the Albany Devils.
It’s pretty clear that Justin Peters is being demoted to Charlotte and that Mike Murphy has already established himself as the starter there. This leaves no room for Muse at the AHL level, so he’ll be shipped down to the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.
