Anderson, Ranta keen to return for Hurricanes next season

Raleigh, NC — Frederick Anderson And Anti Ranta Each expressed a desire to return to the Carolina Hurricanes the following season.

Every Giants goalie can become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.

“Absolutely, I really like it here,” Anderson said Friday, two days after Carolina was defeated by the Florida Panthers in the best-of-7 Eastern Conference finals. “I hope we can do something. Anywhere from a year or more, I’m interested in. Obviously my priority is to come back here, but we’ll see where it goes. I think this The run showed that we have to take a lot of care.” Here’s to our culture and the way we play for each other.”

Anderson went 21–11–1 this season with a 2.48 goals-against average and .903 save percentage in 34 regular-season games (33 starts). The 33-year-old was 5-3 in nine Stanley Cup playoff games (eight starts) with a 1.83 GAA and .927 save percentage.

“The NHL has evolved so much that it’s a fast game, a fast game,” Anderson said. “It puts a lot of stress on the goalkeepers. It’s just about managing and being sharp for that one game and recovering for the next one. I think me and the ‘Rants’ really help each other out. It was a great relationship to have. I think we’ve had a good two years so far, and hopefully more.”
