Goalie Altshuller reaches deal

Posted December 20, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes signed a deal Friday with 2012 draft pick Daniel Altshuller that will pay him $625,000 at the NHL level or $70,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level in the first year, $675,000 in the NHL or $70,000 in the AHL in the second year, and $725,000 in the NHL or $70,000 in the AHL in the third year. He will also receive a signing bonus of $240,000.

Altshuller, 19, is currently tied for first in the Ontario Hockey League (OHL) in wins (20) and is third in the league in goals-against average (2.48) and save percentage (.920) in 29 games for Oshawa. 

“Daniel has put together a nice junior career for Oshawa,” said Ron Francis, Canes VP of Hockey Operations. “He is an important part of our goaltending picture for the future.”

The Ottawa native also led the OHL in wins during the 2012-13 season, after which he was awarded the Roger Neilson Memorial Award as the OHL’s top academic university or college player.

Altshuller was selected by Carolina in the third round, 69th overall, in 2012.
