Two weeks after signing a professional tryout contract (PTO) with the Carolina Hurricanes, it looks like Jaroslav Halak will be seeking a new team for the 2023-24 season.

On Monday, according to Walt Ruff, the Hurricanes have released Halak from his professional tryout contract, making him an unrestricted free agent once again.

"The #Canes have released goaltender Jaroslav Halak from his free agent tryout.

As for Pyotr Kochetkov, today was a maintenance day."



Halak, 38, was brought in by the Carolina Hurricanes on November 6th after the team announced Frederik Andersen would be out indefinitely with a medical issue. The Bratislava native never appeared in any games for the Hurricanes during his PTO.

In 25 games last season for the New York Rangers, Halak had a record of 10-9-5 with a 2.72 goals against average, a .903 save percentage and one shutout.
