Goaltender John Muse, who won two national championships at Boston College, has agreed to terms with the Komets, the club announced today.
Muse, 25, of East Falmouth, Mass., won NCAA titles with the Eagles in 2008 and 2010, and split last year between Florida of the ECHL and Charlotte of the AHL, the Komets said in a statement.
He appeared with the Checkers in the 2013 playoffs, but was about a .500 goalie, with a 9-8-4 record in 21 games for Florida and 7-7-1 in 16 games for Charlotte. His goals-against average was 3.22 in Charlotte and 3.66 in Florida.
In 2011-12, Muse also split time between the Everblades, who won the Kelly Cup that year, and the Checkers. He was playoff MVP that year for the Everblades, with an 11-2 record and a 1.78 goals-against average in the playoffs.
He has overall AHL totals of 18-10-3, with a 2.50 goals-against average and two shutouts in 32 games. In the ECHL, he is 25-14-7 with a 2.98 goals-against average and one shutout in 46 games.
"We have acquired a top goaltender whose resume is loaded with collegiate and pro championships," Komets general manager David Franke said in the statement.
"John has a lot to prove after a so-so 2012-13. The Komet franchise has a lot to prove since not making the playoffs last year. I think this is a great match for both of us."
Muse is the 21st player on the club's preseason roster, along with 13 forwards and seven defensemen, the Komets said.
