Hurricanes acquire G Darling from Blackhawks for draft pick

RALEIGH, N.C. – The Carolina Hurricanes have acquired goalie Scott Darling from the Blackhawks in exchange for a draft pick.

The Hawks will receive a third-round pick in this summer's draft from the deal announced Friday night.

Darling, a Lemont native, can become an unrestricted free agent July 1, and the Hurricanes have exclusive negotiating rights with him until then.

Darling, 28, had a career-best 18 wins with a 2.38 goals-against average in 32 games, helping the Hawks post the best record in the Western Conference. His .924 save percentage tied for fourth among goalies with more than 25 starts.

With Cam Ward and Eddie Lack in net, the Hurricanes ranked 18th in the league, allowing 2.8 goals per game, while facing the fifth-fewest shots on goal.
