Mac Carruth is a Cardiff Devil once again.

The 32 year old American netminder returns to South Wales after two seasons with the Herning Blue Fox in the top Danish league.

Carruth led the Devils to a playoff championship at the end of the 2021-22 season after leading the league with a 93.67 save percentage in 41 league games.  He was selected as a Second Team All-Star that season, posting 30 wins.


A 7th round NHL draft pick by the Chicago Blackhawks, Carruth played 51 games over 4 seasons with their AHL farm team the Rockford Ice Hogs before making the move to Europe to play for Hungarian side Fehervar in the IceHL in 2017-18.

A fan favourite from his first weekend in Cardiff when he beat Swiss side Lausanne in the Champions Hockey League, Carruth described signing back in Cardiff as “coming home.”

Devils’ Head Coach Pete Russell spoke highly of Carruth and what he brings to the Devils:

“Mac is an outstanding goaltender and a fierce competitor.

“I coached against him in Germany, and I know how good he was when he played for the Devils the first time around.

“The conversations with him were pretty simple.  He wanted to come back here, and he is hungry to win.  We love hearing that.

“I’m excited to work with him and happy we aren’t playing against him this season.  He was targeted by a number of teams, and we are pleased he chose to be a Devil again.
