Cam Atkinson of the Columbus Blue Jackets organization let it slip earlier that John Muse signed a deal with the Checkers today, and Muse confirmed it just a bit ago, so it looks like the Charlotte Checkers just secured another Goalie for their system. While no contractual details have been released, one would assume this is an AHL/ECHL two-way deal similar to the one Bobby Goepfert had last season, and would have Muse starting the season in Ft. Meyers with the Everblades.
Muse is a recent graduate of Boston College, where he won not one, but two NCAA Championships during his four years there. He was the starting netminder during his undergraduate career with Boston College.
His only professional experience is one game, a win, with the Portland Pirates last season.
His numbers at Boston College were fantastic, and he got plenty of playing time, serving as the starting goalie during all four seasons there. Highly touted Hurricanes prospect Brian Dumoulin was a teammate of Muse’s at BC.
I think this was a really good pick up for the Checkers, and am anxious to see him in action.
