Twitter has become a useful tool in connecting with athletes and sharing information with others. If you can’t get enough Carolina Hurricanes, you are in luck. I have compiled a list of Carolina Hurricanes and Charlotte Checkers players, among other Hurricanes prospects and personnel so you always know what’s happening with the team. Now keep in mind, the roster isn’t quite set in stone so a couple players could move down to the Checkers or back to their respective junior teams (e.g.: Ryan Murphy).
