McElhinney allowed three goals on 22 shots in the Hurricanes loss to the Avalanche on October 20th. Despite posting a 2.76 GAA and .892 SV%, McElhinney has won three of his first four starts with Carolina. The Blues are fourth in the NHL in goal-scoring (3.50 GF/PG) through 12 games, so keep McElhinney on the waiver wire.

McElhinney will start Tuesday vs. the Canucks.

McElhinney was picked up off of waivers off of Toronto with Scott Darling out to start the season. In his first start with the Hurricanes, McElhinney turned aside 31 of 32 shots in the Hurricanes win in Columbus. With Petr Mrazek struggling in his first couple of starts, McElhinney will get his second start against a Canucks team that has scored nine goals in their first two games.

The Hurricanes have claimed Curtis McElhinney off of waivers from Toronto.

McElhinney lost the backup job in Toronto to Garret Sparks, so he was placed on waivers and picked up by the Hurricanes. McElhinney figures to serve as Petr Mrazek’s backup while Scott Darling (lower-body) is out, but will likely find himself back on waivers after that.
