Hurricanes coach Adam Griffith won't be sweating over wicketkeeping options when the new BBL season kicks off in December.
The 42-year-old former Launceston quick has had Matthew Wade, Tim Paine, Ben McDermott and Jake Doran at his disposal during the last few seasons, with only Doran yet to represent Australia.
Paine hasn't played BBL since winning the Test captaincy, but thanks to the signing of Melbourne Stars veteran Peter Handscomb last week, the Hurricanes have yet another internationally-capped keeper on their hands.

The 29-year-old expects last season's first-choice keeper McDermott to retain the role, but will eagerly step up if required.
"I'm still happy to put my hands up and keep," Handscomb said.
"I've said I've always been happy to do that in white ball cricket - my body doesn't quite hold up to doing that in red ball cricket any more so that's just part of it.
"Given the opportunity to keep for Hobart I'd definitely jump at it but I think Ben McDermott's probably the one who's going to start there, he did it last year and I'd be surprised if that goes in a different direction.
"But I'll still be working on it in pre-season just in case."
Handscomb is the second Stars veteran in as many seasons to be squeezed out of Melbourne and find a new home in Tasmania.
The Victorian Sheffield Shield captain spoke extensively to former BBL teammate Scott Boland about making the move after the latter impressed in his first season in purple.
A 31-year-old former Australian quick, Boland topped the Hurricanes' wicket charts with 15 in 10 games at an economy rate of 8.28.
"I spoke to Scott Boland, someone who made a similar move going from the Stars down to Hobart and how he'd felt making that change and being around that squad, the coaching staff and all that," Handscomb said.
"He was quite instrumental in getting me across, but also just having open and honest conversations with Griffo based on where he sees me and what I'm going to do for them."

When he arrives, Handscomb hopes to make the most of his new surroundings.
"I like Tassie - like it a lot," he said.
"It's a beautiful part of the world, it can be a bit cold sometimes but during the summer months it's pretty bloody awesome.
"So I'm looking forward to getting down there and playing on a good wicket with a good bunch of lads and maybe sampling some of the beautiful Tassie wines and some meat down there."
