Watch as goalie Frederik Anderson speaks on signing with Carolina Hurricanes.
After five seasons with the Toronto Maple Leafs, Frederik Anderson has landed in North Carolina. On Wednesday, Anderson signed with the Hurricanes for two years and $9 million.
“From what I hear they have a really good team, really good culture”, Anderson said about the Hurricanes. “With that part, I’m really excited that they’re interested in me.”
Anderson spoke on the decision to not return to Maple Leafs during free agency.
“I think we were a little bit too far apart to even get something going. The talks my agent and Leafs management had, was just tough. They obviously have limited kept space and wanted to pursue something else. No hard feelings there.”
In addition, Anderson spoke on new camaraderie with goalie Antti Raanta who also signed with Hurricanes.
“I don’t know him personally yet, looking forward to”, he said on Raanta. “To touch on the relationship you got to have, just good healthy competitiveness. But also, you’re able to help each other to get the best out of both goalies is really important. Having a good friendship off the ice is really good. Like I said before, having that competitive edge and trying to help your team when it’s your chance in the net.”
