The Phantoms have announced that goalie Carsen
Chubak has agreed to an AHL contract with Adirondack
for the 2013-14 season.
The 24-year-old Chubak excelled with Niagara
University last season and was one of the top
college goalies in the country. He was also one
of 10 finalists for the Hobey Baker Award.
In 2012-13, Chubak went 23-7-5 with a 1.91 goals-against
average and a .939 saves percentage during his
junior season as he led the Purple Eagles to an
NCAA Tournament appearance for the first time
Carsen Chubak was the Atlantic Hockey Conference
Player of the Year while the program won their
first ever Atlantic regular season crown. In league
play, he was 20-3-2, 1.82 and .939.
The 5-11, 170-pound native of Prince Albert,
Sask. had been hampered by injuries prior to his
breakout year. He played in only one game in 2011-12
and appeared in just nine games in 2010-11.
The Adirondack Phantoms had another Hobey Baker
finalist on their team at the end of last season
who will potentially return to the team in 2013-14.
Kyle Flanagan of St. Lawrence University who played
13 games with Adirondack was also nominated for
college hockey's highest individual honor.
