Found September 17, 2013 on Holdout Sports:
Carolina Hurricanes left winger Jeff Skinner is apparently a big Taylor Swift fan. During Swift's "Red" concert tour stop in Raleigh on Friday night, Skinner gave her a red Hurricanes jersey as a gift. The caption with the photo reads: "Growing the game.... One person at a time."

Jeff Skinner gives Taylor Swift an autographed jersey

Carolina Hurricanes young star Jeff Skinner had a brush with greatness recently when he not only was able to present country pop megastar Taylor Swift with a replica of his very own team jersey that he had autographed, but also was afforded the opportunity to pose alongside the attractive young lady. The photo, perhaps snapped […]The post Carolina Hurricanes star Jeff Skinner gives...

Photo: Taylor Swift, Carolina Hurricanes fan?

Hurricanes star Jeff Skinner is a great goal scorer, a skilled competitor and one of the best young hockey players in the NHL. He’s also friends with the most powerful young woman in country music. Skinner recently tweeted out a photo alongside Taylor Swift, with the caption “Growing the game…. One person at a time.” He presented the country music star with a signed Canes...

Realistic Expectations: Jeff Skinner edition

Outside of the team's defensive rebuild, most of the talk concerning the Hurricanes this off-season has been about their young star Jeff Skinner. Although, a lot of it hasn't been very positive. Skinner is coming off the worst season of his brief career and unfortunately for him, it happened right after he signed a big six-year contract extension that will carry a cap hit...

How will Alexander Semin's second year in Carolina go?

The Hurricanes one-year gamble on Alexander Semin turned out better than just about anyone could have expected. GM Jim Rutherford may have been a little reluctant to sign the "enigmatic" Russian winger, but he ended up getting his money's worth as Semin was a point-per-game player in his first year with the Canes. Not only that, but he played a solid game in all three...

Training Camp Battles: 4th Line Center

Much like the rest of their bottom-six, the Hurricanes don't really have a set plan for their fourth line just yet and we probably won't know who will be on it until the team gets a few games under their belt. With so many players on two-way deals in camp, the only way to find out who sticks is through a process of trial and error, so the Hurricanes will likely go with this...

Metropolitan Division Preview: Carolina Hurricanes

The Carolina Hurricanes and the Philadelphia Flyers have a somewhat shared history. Two all-time great Flyers, Rod Brind’Amour and Mark Recchi, won a Stanley Cup with the ‘Canes in 2006. Former Flyer Justin Williams was also on that roster. Their coach? Peter Laviolette. But that’s pretty much it. There’s not a noted record of animosity between these teams. They’ve played...

Training Camp Battles: 3rd Line Right Wing

The other day, we looked at the players competing for the third line left wing spot in camp. Today, we will be moving over to the right wing. What is expected out of this position is similar to the left wing so I'm going to keep the intro short. However, one thing that the Hurricanes probably want out of their right wing is versatility and the ability to play top-six minutes...
