Make all the Auston Matthews jokes you'd like, the Hurricanes have solid defense and the addition of goaltender Eddie Lack may help get a few more points piled up for the squad in what could be another trying year for fans. Lack was traded to the 'Canes from Vancouver back in June and made his preseason debut on Monday night (replete with...

Being drafted into professional sports is hard. Eight million students play high school sports, and only 460,000 of them will play in the NCAA. Only 6.8% of NCAA hockey players will be drafted in tho the NHL. Those players may not see time in the NHL until years down the road. Age and eligibility rules are different in hockey and teams seem to...

The Carolina Hurricanes have a tradition of late of non-aggression in free agency. Year after year players are available that could make an instant impact on the team and management passes them by. This lack of pursuing good talent is a source of frustration for the fans who have not tasted the playoffs since 2009. Who is to blame? Ultimately...

The Carolina Hurricanes had a horrible 2014-15 season. Starting 0-8 in October, saddled with another Jeff Skinner concussion and a horrendous broken leg to Jordan Staal, rookie head coach Bill Peters got a nice "Welcome to the NHL, coach." Add to that a superstar player that could not or would not produce, and the end result was not pretty. Of...

The title of “captain” in today’s NHL has taken on a bit of a different meaning than it meant in the past decade or two. Today, the captaincy is less about showcasing a player's leadership and more about showcasing talent.

The Carolina Hurricanes' Elias Lindholm is known by his teammates as the "Swedish Beast." I wrote about when Eric Staal glossed him that last November after he scored a game-winning goal in overtime against the Columbus Blue Jackets. With his new contract, the beast has made bank, and deservedly so. Last week the Hurricanes announced that...

Victor Rask is up to the task. He broke into the NHL ice with the Carolina Hurricanes last year and I believe will have another sold season this year. Even before Jordan Staal went down with a broken leg Rask was catching the attention of Coach Bill Peters and the fans. He earned his spot with above-average play in the preseason and never looked...
