Carolina Hurricanes goalie Pyotr Kochetkov has signed a four-year extension with the team.
The team announced the signing on Twitter.
“Pyotr has been extremely solid for both Carolina and Chicago since coming to North America last season,” said GM Don Waddell in a statement. “We believe he has a bright future in our crease, and we’re excited to watch him as he continues to grow as a person and player.”
Kochetkov, 23, is a native of Penza, Russia, and has a .914 save percentage and 2.00 goals-against average in four starts this season.
He has earned a 5-0-2 record, 2.16 goals-against average, .909 save percentage and one shutout in seven career regular-season appearances with the Hurricanes.
Playing largely back-up role to Frederik Andersen, Kochetkov was Carolina’s second-round pick, 36th overall, in 2019.
