Veteran netminder Curtis McElhinney will test the open market this summer.

Carolina Hurricanes general manager Don Waddell confirmed as much on Saturday, saying McElhinney is definitely "going somewhere else," according to Chip Alexander of the News & Observer.

McElhinney, 36, is coming off a strong season with the Hurricanes during which he posted a .912 save percentage in 33 appearances after being claimed off waivers from the Toronto Maple Leafs in October.

The second member of Carolina's goalie tandem, Petr Mrazek, is also a UFA, and Waddell added the club is working to re-sign him.
