Hurricanes Agree to Terms with Brian Boucher

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.

Boucher (6’2”, 200 lbs.) has compiled a 119-131-44 record, a 2.69 goals-against average and a .901 save percentage in 314 career NHL regular-season games with Philadelphia, Phoenix, Calgary, Chicago, Columbus and San Jose. In 43 career Stanley Cup playoff games, he boasts a 21-18 record, a 2.36 goals-against average and a .911 save percentage, and recorded all 18 decisions (11-7) in the Flyers’ run to the 2000 Eastern Conference Finals. Boucher was originally drafted by the Flyers in the first round, 22nd overall, in the 1995 NHL Entry Draft. His career statistics can be found here.
