Carolina Hurricanes Prospect Pyramid

Prospect ranking lists come out annually for every team in the NHL, and I am always perplexed as to why these rankings still exist. The No. 10 prospect for the Carolina Hurricanes is going to mean an extremely different thing from year to year, and it often seems like the difference between the sixth and […] The post Carolina Hurricanes Prospect Pyramid appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Hurricanes Defeat the Capitals, Remain Unbeaten in the Preseason

Hurricanes Defeat the Capitals, Remain Unbeaten in the Preseason

The Canes took down the Caps on Friday and improved to 3-0-0 in the 2018 preseason. For the first time this preseason, the Carolina Hurricanes played against a team that wasn’t the Tampa Bay Lightning, but that didn’t stop them from winning yet another game. The Hurricanes improved to 3-0-0 in their exhibition schedule thanks to a 5-1 win over a Washington Capitals club that played without Alex Ovechkin, Tom Wilson and John Carlson, among others. Like they did twice in as many games against the Lightning, the Canes were flying from the start on Friday. On an early power play, Jaccob...

It’s Game 3 for Brind’Amour & gang. The Carolina Hurricanes face off against the defending Stanley Cup Champion Washington Capitals in Raleigh after starting the preseason 2-0 against the Tampa Bay Lightning. Roster decisions will come soon, so for some players it’s their last chance to force Rod Brind’Amour to make a tough choice. In game two, Brind’Amour played more Hurricanes stars than in game one and fans were able to get a glimpse of summer acquisition Dougie Hamilton, who scored his first “unofficial” goal as a Hurricane. The team scored 10 goals over the first two...

Hurricanes Need New Chemistry This Season

It seems like the Carolina Hurricanes’ drastic organizational overhaul has been beaten to death on local and national media outlets, but that’s because it’s true. Pound for pound, the ‘Canes have seen more turnover in the last calendar year, both in the front office and on the ice, than any other NHL team not named […] The post Hurricanes Need New Chemistry This Season appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Scott Darling, the goalie for the Carolina Hurricanes, took time out from his intense workout regimen to gear up and play some hockey Wednesday night. Although it was a preseason tilt – the second game of a back-to-back against the Tampa Bay Lightning – I was anxious to get a look at the leaner, meaner […] The post Carolina Hurricanes’ Scott Darling from Gym to Ice appeared first on The Hockey Writers.

Recap: Canes romp over Lightning 6-1

The Canes, playing a more veteran-heavy lineup, followed up their performance in Tampa on Tuesday with an even more dominating one on Wednesday. A night after Andrei Svechnikov provided a glimpse of what might await the Carolina Hurricanes in the regular season, Martin Necas showed that the hoped-for production from the Canes’ rookie duo might not be a pipe dream after all. Necas was one of five players to light the lamp for Carolina, who saw 12 players on the scoresheet led by three-point nights from Janne Kuokkanen (one goal, two assists) and Justin Williams (three assists) in a 6-1 win...

Recap: Canes, Svechnikov Off and Running in 4-1 Win

Svechnikov doesn’t disappoint, neither do Canes in return to Hockey Season For most looking in on the preseason opener, the main attraction of Tuesday night’s game was the first NHL-level appearance from second overall draft pick Andrei Svechnikov, who is expected to break camp with the Canes and be a critical piece in enhancing what has been a stale offensive club for a number of years. Canes fans were not disappointed in the team, or in Svechnikov, as he produced a goal and an assist in his NHL preseason debut as the Hurricanes toppled the Tampa Bay Lightning by a 4-1 score. The...
