After trading Alex Nedeljkovic to Detroit, the Hurricanes only had three pending unrestricted free agent goaltenders on their roster.  They haven’t been able to sign any of them so they’ll be turning to the open market to find their new tandem.  One of those appears to be Frederik Andersen as Michael Russo of The Athletic reports (Twitter link) that Andersen is likely to sign with Carolina soon after the free agent period officially opens up later today.

Last season was a tough one for the 31-year-old as injuries and general ineffectiveness limited him to just 24 appearances with Toronto while posting a 2.95 GAA along with a .895 SV%, career worsts in both categories.
