Matt Karash: Canes prospect profile: Victor Rask

When the Carolina Hurricanes selected Elias Lindholm with the #5 overall pick in this year’s NHL draft, Victor Rask quickly fell a notch in terms of Canes prospect buzz. The exciting topics of conversation right now seem to be Elias Lindholm at forward and Ryan Murphy on defense. While those players deserve the attention too, I think Rask could play as big of a role as either...

Matt Karash: Canes prospect profile: Elias Lindholm

Elias Lindholm officially inked his entry-level deal yesterday afternoon. The team web site has video of media Q&A with him and Jim Rutherford at the signing. Biggest takeaway was Jim Rutherford seemed very confident that Lindholm would be playing at the NHL level this season. I regularly (and justifiably) get accused of being long-winded, so here is the real short version...

Inside Carolina's Special Teams Woes: the Power Play

In my analysis of the Hurricanes, most of my emphasis is placed on the team's performance at even strength. Why? Because the majority of the game is played there and it has been shown that owning the battle at even strength leads to more wins. However, special teams are just as important to consider.

Hurricanes 2013 Development Camp Notes: Wednesday morning

In case you missed it, the Hurricanes were nice enough to stream today's morning practice from their player development camp on their web site. This year's camp features 26 players including the majority of their draft picks of the last few years along with a handful of undrafted players. It's tough to get a grip on all of these players because this was only a two hour...

Inside Carolina's Special teams Woes: The Penalty Kill

The other day, I went inside the numbers of the Hurricanes power play to see what the root of the problem was and determined that it wasn't nearly as bad as their 14.6% efficiency rating indicated. The power play had its issues, but they were creating chances pretty frequently and can probably rebound next year with a couple of personnel improvements and system tweaks. The penalty...

Brenden Morrow should be Canes’ free-agent target

As the next generation of would-be Carolina Hurricanes goes through the July ritual of development camp, the current generation still needs some help. While the Hurricanes continue to sniff around free-agent defenseman Ron Hainsey, there’s another player who may fill a bigger need. There is one free agent still out there who was a teammate of Hurricanes coach Kirk Muller with...
