GLEN FALLS, N.Y. – Niagara hockey goalie Carsen Chubak has signed an American Hockey League contract with the Adirondack Phantoms, the top affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers.
“We are very happy for Carsen and wish him well with his professional endeavors,” head coach Dave Burkholder said. “The Phantoms are getting a very dedicated and focused individual.”
The Prince Albert, Saskatchewan native led the 2012-13 Purple Eagles to the school’s fourth NCAA Tournament appearance, and first since 2008, and the program’s first Atlantic Hockey regular season title. Chubak was 23-7-5 with a 1.91 GAA and a .930 save percentage.
Chubak led the league this season in wins, goals-against average and save percentage, while finishing third with 2042:38 minutes played. His six shutouts also led the conference, and were tied for first in the nation. His achievements between the pipes earned him AHA Player of the Year honors, as well as a spot as a Top-10 Hobey Baker finalist. Chubak is only one of three players—Paul Zanette and Joe Tallari—in Purple Eagle history to earn this distinction.
The Phantoms recently concluded their fourth season in the AHL, finished the 2012-13 campaign with an overall record of 31-38-7.
