Carolina Hurricanes fans will have just a bit more to be thankful for this season as the team announced that they had signed goaltender Pyotr Kochetkov to a four-year, $2 million AAV contract on Wednesday morning.

The young Russian netminder broke out for a big season with the Chicago Wolves last year — his first professional season in North America — and even appeared in a few games for Carolina after the Canes ran into some injury issues.
