Manitoba Moose Sign ECHL Tendy Carlson

The 25-year-old backstop will look to battle with Mikhail Berdin and current Winnipeg Jets’ restricted free agent goalie Eric Comrie for a place on the 2019-20 Moose squad. As per club policy, the negotiated terms of the one-year, American Hockey League contract were not announced. 

Carlson, a 6-foot-3, 180-pound Minnesota native, had a two-year stint with Coulee in the North American Hockey League – including one uber-productive year with the Chill in 2014-15 where he collected 25 wins while posting six shutouts, a .930 save percentage and a 2.44 goals against average – Carlson then suited up for 17 games with Mercyhurst College of the AHA in 2015-16 contributing decent numbers. 

Most recently, Carlson spent the past three seasons playing in the East Coast Hockey League for four different teams; South Carolina Stingrays (2016-18), Indy Fuel (2017), Kansas City Mavericks (2017-18) and the Rapid City Rush (2018-19). Mixed in with his colourful ECHL career is a six-game run with the American Hockey League’s Hershey Bears, in which the goalkeeper went 2-3-0 with decent numbers in the 2017-18 season.

Carlson played in 45 games for the Rush in 2018-19, going 21-17-6, while only giving up 126 goals on 1,508 shots for a .916 save percentage and a 2.91 goals against average. He recorded four shutouts on the season, tops in the ECHL. Carlson was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Washington Capitals.
