There are a number of teams in the National Hockey League looking for answers in goal this season and at least one team has decided to turn to a reliable veteran.

On Monday, NHL insider Elliotte Friedman revealed that 17-year NHL veteran Jaroslav Halak was spotted training with the Carolina Hurricanes on what Friedman believes is a professional tryout offer. Halak went unsigned as a free agent this summer but it would appear the Hurricanes are at least taking a look at what the 38 year old netminder can still bring to the table.

Halak of course brings a wealth of experience to the table with a career total of 581 NHL games under his belt, and is most recenetly coming off of a 25 game campaign wit the New York Rangers last season. Over those 25 games Halak recorded a goals against average of 2.72 and a save percentage of .903.

Update: Hurricanes are reporting that goaltender Frederik Andersen is currently being evaluated for a "medical issue" which would certainly explain the Hurricanes sudden interest in Halak. It would appear as though the door is wide open for an 18th season in the NHL for Halak.
