The Carolina Hurricanes have traded a first-round pick in the 2020 NHL Entry Draft to the New York Rangers in exchange for defender Brad Skjei. https://twitter.com/TSNBobMcKenzie/status/1232035293328482304?s=20 It was a busy day for the Hurricanes who pulled out all the stops and acquired not only Skjei from the Rangers but also defender Sami Vatanen from the New Jersey Devils and center Vincent Trocheck from the Florida Panthers. With the Hurricanes coming within one series of playing for the Stanley Cup a year ago, it's clear the team believes their current core is good enough to make a deep run. Earning this vote of confidence from ownership, the Hurricanes are now primed to make a push for better position in the Metropolitan Division. While the Hurricanes made a bevy of moves at the Deadline, they were far from the only team in their division to make moves to bolster their lineups.

The Florida Panthers have traded forward Vincent Trocheck to the Carolina Hurricanes in exchange for forwards Erik Haula, Lucas Wallmark, defender Chase Priskie and another prospect, according to Elliotte Friedman. https://twitter.com/FriedgeHNIC/status/1231960712047726598?s=20 The 26-year-old Trocheck has scored 10 goals and 36 points in 55 games this season. From an offensive standpoint, he's produced nearly identical totals to his output from last season, a season deemed to be a down one for the 26-year-old center. While the point-totals may not jump off the page, Trocheck has still been a very good player for the Florida Panthers and a change of scenery may help him round back into form. He would score 25 goals and 53 points in the 2015-16 season, 23 goals and 54 points in 82 games in the 2017-18 season and then set career-highs in goals (31), assists (44) and points (75) in the 2017-18 season. What's also important to note is that Trocheck comes to the Hurricanes...

Hurricanes Goaltending

The city of Raleigh, North Carolina is planning to celebrate the incredible and historic story its team told on Saturday night in Toronto. Plus, Jordan Binnington is red hot, and we'll look at the week in review. David Ayres Day in Raleigh David Ayres, the Emergency Backup Goaltender (EBUG) that made history with the Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday night, is having the kind of sports week they make movies about. Facing his hometown team in over half a game of hockey action on Hockey Night in Canada, the 42-year-old Zamboni driver with a transplanted kidney made eight saves on 10 shots to help the Hurricanes hold onto a 6-3 victory exactly 40 years after the Miracle on Ice. It is and will forever be a legendary hockey story, the kind Gord Downie would sing about if he was still with us. Carolina Hurricanes emergency goaltender David Ayres (John E.
