Carsen Chubak decided to forgo his senior season at Niagara as the goaltender signed an American Hockey League contract with the Adirondack Phantoms, the top affiliate of the Philadelphia Flyers.
Chubak was the Atlantic Hockey Player of the Year and was a Top 10 Hobey Baker finalist. He led Niagara to the program's fourth NCAA tournament appearance and first Atlantic Hockey regular season title. This season he went 23-7-5 with a 1.91 goals against average and a .930 save percentage.
"We are happy for Carsen and wish him well with his professional endeavors," Niagara coach Dave Burkholder said in a release from the school. "The Phantoms are getting a very dedicated and focused individual."
The Phantoms went 31-38-7 in their fourth year in the AHL.
