Sports Injury Alert:
In what seems to be an alarming trend early in this NHL season, another player, Carolina Hurricanes Elias Lindholm has suffered an upper body injury that he received Friday night against the Los Angeles Kings, this according to Chip Alexander of the Raleigh News & Observer.
The 18 year old Lindholm had gone into last nights contest with one goal in four games that came on his lone shot on goal. He did add another shot on goal last night, but so far in his brief NHL career, he stands with just the one point.
Fans of the Hurricanes are watching closely to see if they decide to keep the overall fifth pick in the 2013 NHL Draft at the NHL level past the nine game deadline before they ‘burn’ a season from his entry level contract. Also last night, Justin Faulk worried the team when he suffered what looked to be a lower body injury, but he did eventually return to the game.

It has been a rough week for former Bruins goaltenders.
Tim Thomas went down with a lower-body injury in Florida just five days ago, and now another familiar face has followed suit. Anton Khudobin has been sharing the duties between the pipes with Cam Ward this season for the Carolina Hurricanes, but in his third start, Khudobin was forced to exit the game early. After coming out...
Jordan Staal is no stranger to goal scoring. Through his first seven seasons, the Carolina Hurricanes alternate captain has lit the lamp 130 times. This season, though, things just aren’t going Staal’s way. Entering Sunday, the centerman had been held scoreless through his first five games, although to be fair, his 12 shots on goal don’t even rank in the top 30 of the league...
Carolina Hurricanes starting goalie Anton Khudobin left the game Sunday against the Phoenix Coyotes midway through the second period at after taking an awkward spill. Khudobin came out to play a dump-in in the top the left circle but fell to his knees. After making his way back to the crease Khudobin signaled the bench for help needing assistance to skate off the ice on one leg....
The Carolina Hurricanes are exactly where they want to be right now, 4 games into the season. Sure you could nitpick about the point that got away against Detroit and the late collapse in Pittsburgh after impressively clawing even at 2-2. But 5 points in 4 games is a playoff pace, and it is much better than the horrible couple game starts of years past. And maybe most significantly...
RALEIGH, N.C. The scheduling gods can be cruel in the NHL, and they did the Carolina Hurricanes (2-1-2) no favors on Thursday and Friday.
The Hurricanes got a hard-fought win at Washington on Thursday, only to get back to Raleigh early Friday morning, get some sleep and then face a physical Los Angeles Kings squad (3-2).
The game was played at the pace the Kings would prefer a...

For Carolina Hurricane’s rookie Elias Lindholm, Thursday night’s game against the Washington Capitals was a game, and a night that the Boden, Sweden native will never ever forget.
Lindholm scored his first career NHL goal against goaltender...
I am not sure what to call this, but it isn't a goal call that's for sure.
All three Carolina goals from today on the Canes website have the same, uh, soundtrack and I am not sure why since the Canes TV crew did the game.
I get the the long Woooo, I know of that tradition, but the other sounds, I have no idea where that is coming from.
Carolina lost 5-3 to Phoenix and...
They’ve changed divisions but one thing about the Carolina Hurricanes’ games against the Washington Capitals has not changed: they’re still gritty rough matchups.
The two old Southeast Division rivals now members of the NHL’s new Metropolitan Division went at it Thursday at the Verizon Center. Once again there were hard checks hard shoves some elbows thrown fierce board...
We're only six games into the season, but there are already some signs of major concern in Raleigh, as the Hurricanes dropped a 5-3 decision the Phoenix Coyotes yesterday. Not only did the Canes lose their third game of the last four, they did it while getting grossly outplayed at even strength and looking outmatched by a team who they probably should have matched up better against...
The Canes on Sunday activated forward Tuomo Ruutu from injured reserve.
Ruutu has missed the first five games with a leg injury. He was placed on injured reserve Sept. 29.
"Sloppy," "gritty," and "ugly" are a few choice words that have been used to describe Carolina's performance against the Los Angeles Kings last night. The end result was disappointing with the Canes losing in the shootout, but they managed to get a point thanks to a nice comeback effort in the third period and managed to hang tough with a team that...
