Ellis back with Canes; Muse to Checkers

Posted April 1, 2013

The return of goalie Dan Ellis from injured reserve Monday created a domino effect that sent John Muse back to the Charlotte Checkers.

Muse was on the bench to back up Justin Peters while Ellis was out, but never saw any ice time.

The East Falmouth, MA, native has posted a 6-6-0 record and a 3.48 goals-against average in 13 games with Charlotte this season. He was recalled to Charlotte from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL on Jan. 12. Muse was 9-8-4 with a 3.66 goals-against average in 21 games with the Everblades prior to joining the Checkers.

In 2011-12, Muse backstopped the Florida Everblades to the ECHL Kelly Cup championship, posting an 11-2 record, a 1.78 goals-against average and a .939 save percentages in 13 postseason appearances. He posted a 10-3-3 record, 1.81 goals-against average and a .941 save percentage in 15 regular-season games with Charlotte last season.

Ellis will be with the team as they take on the Montreal Canadiens Monday, although Peters will be in net making his fourth consecutive start.

“Justin Peters, after his performance against Winnipeg, has deserved the right to play,” said radio play-by-play voice Chuck Kaiton. “When you play in some of these traditional buildings like Toronto and Montreal, hard not to get up. Hopefully he can build on the effort he had in Winnipeg.”

In other injury news for the Canes, Tuomo Ruutu is listed as day-to-day with a lower body injury and defenseman Justin Faulk will miss another game, although he has returned to skating in practice. Chad LaRose is expected to return to the lineup Monday.
