The Carolina Hurricanes have signed 20-year-old center Elias Lindholm to a two-year contract extension, the team announced on Thursday. The deal carries an AAV of $2.7 million, the team shared of their own accord, with Lindholm making $2.5 million in the 2016-17 season and $2.9 million in the following year. This coming season Lindholm...

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...

The Franchise Four. The Mount Rushmore. Four players who tell the story of an organization. In this series I'll be taking a look at the history of all 30 NHL squads. For criteria, I'm choosing one forward, defenceman, goaltender and a wild card from any position. Moving south from Hartford in 1997, the Carolina Hurricanes have a carved out a...

The Carolina Hurricanes have hired stats guru (and, as the team highlights, a chemist and expert in nanotechnology) Eric Tlsuky as a Hockey Analyst "to provide data to the hockey operations department." Tlusky worked with the team some in a part time capacity last season and the team must have liked what he was able to offer, because he will...

The 2014-15 NHL regular season was, in part, as much a race to the bottom as it was to the top. With Connor McDavid in the offing and Jack Eichel perhaps the best consultation prize in the history of the world, last year the Stanley Cup wasn't the only prize up for grabs in the NHL. While there  is no player on that level available in next...

As the new season approaches, the Carolina Hurricanes have a few final situations to settle before October. Cam Ward and Eric Staal are both approaching the end of their respective deals, and the indication from both players is that they'd like to finish their careers with the only NHL team they've ever known.

Alexander Semin had an awful season last year with the Carolina Hurricanes. In fact it was his worst yet in his eight seasons in the NHL. His six goals and 13 assists were downright horrid in view of his huge five-year $35 million salary. Being paid like a superstar and underperforming is an understatement. On April 24th, I wrote part two of...

When the Carolina Hurricanes removed former general manager Jim Rutherford from his position, Canes fans everywhere breathed a sigh of relief. It was well past time to move on from JR and his particular managerial quirks. The most noticeable being his incessant need to recycle players from the past. Matt Cullen, Cory Stillman, Aaron Ward, and...
