According to multiple sources, Niagara University goaltender Carsen Chubak has signed an American Hockey League Contract with the Adirondack Phantoms, the top affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers. The 2013 Hobey Baker Award Finalist will forego his senior season to begin his professional career.

The Prince Albert, Saskatchewan native led Dave Burkholder's Purple Eagles to the school's first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2008. Chubak was 23-7-5 with a 1.91 GAA and a .930 save percentage.

The 24 year-old dealt with injuries his first two seasons at Niagara and bounced around in three years of junior hockey. He will compete for the starting job in Adirondack with former Ohio State goaltender Cal Heeter.
