Canes’ lack of ECHL affiliation no surprise

Canes’ lack of ECHL affiliation no surprise

Photo by David Rosenblum/Icon Sportswire via The number of players who have risen through the ranks from the low minors to the NHL is falling, and the Hurricanes are the latest team to forego a formal ECHL affiliation. Pour one out for the Carolina Hockey Alliance. This never-ending year may have skewed your sense of time, but it was only 17 months ago that the Carolina Hurricanes signed an affiliation agreement with the ECHL’s Greenville Swamp Rabbits, an arrangement that was trumpeted with a glowing Greenville press release regaling the possibilities for prospect...

Upcoming Forecast: Carolina Hurricanes Prospect Roundup - Week of November 16-22

Photo by Michael Longo/Icon Sportswire via While the NHL may not be seeing much action, hockey is still being played and the Canes have plenty of prospects in action. With the NHL still in “will they even return?” limbo, it’s time to turn our focus to where hockey is being played. The Hurricanes currently have a large amount of prospects playing in both North America and Europe and with the myriad of leagues they are in, I felt it might be easier to do a weekly roundup of all the ones in action. I will be trying to keep this routine every week, with stats being...

An Offseason Conversation with Rod Brind’Amour: Part 3

Wake Competition Center gives Hurricanes a practice home to be proud of

Kaydee Gawlik We got to see the inside of the new Hurricanes’ practice facility, and it’s impressive, to say the least. The Hurricanes’ additions to their roster this offseason have been limited by the NHL’s flat salary cap, but the team did make a massive upgrade earlier this summer: the opening of its new space and practice facility as part of the Wake Competition Center in Morrisville. And it’s a beauty. In addition to two NHL standard ice rinks, one of which can seat 1200 spectators, and the other 500, the Hurricanes’ portion of the facility is home to a...

Taking a look at Hurricanes’ potential new division for 2021 season

With speculation about potential NHL divisional realignment coming for the 2021 season, we take a look at what that could mean for the Hurricanes. There isn’t too much we know about how the coming NHL season will shape up, what the schedule will look like or even when exactly it will begin. In a normal year the season would have already started, but of course 2020 is no ordinary year. There are so many rumors swirling around about how the league is going to handle the next COVID-impacted season, but one thing is certain: it’ll be another year of change and adjustment as the NHL and...

Back to the Box: Looking at the Hurricanes’ penalty problems

Photo by Elsa/ The Carolina Hurricanes are one of the NHL’s most promising teams, but one of their worst shortcomings is the frequency with which they end up in the penalty box. The Hurricanes are not a dirty team, despite what Capitals fans may want to say about Warren Foegele. They had the fourth fewest amount of major penalties (6) last season and only four teams had fewer misconducts (2) called against them. Carolina also had no ejections, suspensions or even fines handed out to players — Rod Brind’Amour’s being a different story. So it’s crazy that despite all of that,...
