Hurricanes sign G John Muse, and other Checkers contract updates

Great news today came out of Raleigh with the announcement that the Hurricanes had signed John Muse to a two-way NHL contract.  The Hurricanes will still have to sign one more goaltender for the Checkers (and the Checkers will probably have to sign another goaltender to an AHL contract as well.)

Yesterday, the Hurricanes announced a number of significant hockey operations changes to the coaching staff and front office positions in Raleigh.  There is still no word on a contract extension for Checkers coach Jeff Daniels.

Already, the roster in Charlotte is shaping up.  Repeating the format I used last year, I figured I should post the latest on the Checkers contract front.  I will continue to update it as things change.
