Hurricanes sign goalie Ellis

The Carolina Hurricanes have signed unrestricted free agent goaltender Dan Ellis to a one-year, $650,000 contract.

Ellis, 32, posted an 8-7-2 record with a 2.46 goals-against-average and .922 save percentage in 18 games this season with the Hurricanes' AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers.

"Dan is an experienced netminder who has had good years in the NHL, and played well for Charlotte this season," said Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford. "We feel it is important to have a veteran goalie to partner with Cam during the compressed season."

Earlier today, the Hurricanes traded goalie Brian Boucher and defenseman Mark Alt to the Philadelphia Flyers for center Puke Pither.

Ellis has compiled a career record of 72-57-15 with a 2.68 goals-against-average and 12 shutouts in 165 career NHL games with Dallas, Nashville, Tampa Bay and Anaheim.

The Saskatoon, Sask., was originally selected by Dallas in the second round, 60th overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.
