News continues to pour out of the Carolina Hurricanes organization as press releases of a signing and retirement hit Caniacs today. On a sad note, Equipment Manager Wally Tatomir has retired after 17 seasons with the Canes. Jim Rutherford had this to say about Mr. Tatomir:
“I would like to congratulate my friend Wally on a great career, as he steps away after many good years in hockey. Wally was a major contributor to our organization’s success and he will be missed. We’re happy that after years as an apprentice and assistant with the equipment staff, Jorge (Alves) will join us full time.”
Cardiac Cane thanks Wally for his hard work and dedication since joining the Hartford Whalers in 1994 as the full-time equipment manager. Best wishes in your retirement! Please read the full press release here.
On a happier note, Carolina signed 23-year-old goalie John Muse to a one-year contract! Caniacs witnessed Muse expertly handle the Checkers’ crease in Charlotte briefly this season.
