RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) - The Carolina Hurricanes say goaltending coach Mike Bales has resigned.

General manager Don Waddell announced the move Wednesday.

The 47-year-old Bales spent two years with the Hurricanes. This season, the goaltending tandem of Petr Mrazek and Curtis McElhinney helped the Hurricanes reach the playoffs for the first time in a decade and advance to the Eastern Conference final.

Carolina tied for seventh in the league during the regular season, allowing an average of 2.69 goals.
