ANDREJ SEKERA RUMORS

Andrej Sekera Possessed The Puck For 24 Seconds Before Scoring Against Anaheim

Down 5-0 to the Ducks in the second period of Sunday night’s game in Anaheim, Hurricanes defenseman Andrej Sekera was clearly fed up and decided to take things into his own hands. And by that, I mean he refused to pass to anybody else on the ice until Carolina scored their first goal. With about five minutes left in the second, Sekera gathered a loose puck in the offensive zone...

Andrej Sekera's surprising season

When the Hurricanes acquired Andrej Sekera from the Buffalo Sabres, it was met with mixed to negative reactions. Sekera wasn't considered a "top four defenseman" by many and most thought that he wasn't worth a roster player and a second round pick. It's been almost seven months since that trade happened and Sekera actually looks like he is worth way more than...

Sekera doubtful for Canucks game

Defenseman Andrej Sekera was not at practice Saturday and Canes coach Kirk Muller said he is very doubtful for Sunday's game against the Vancouver Canucks. Sekera has an undisclosed upper-body injury and did not play Friday in the Canes' 5-2 loss to the New Jersey Devils.

Andrej Sekera is a good hockey player

With all of the chaos that has gone down this off-season, the Hurricanes draft day trade for Andrej Sekera looks like a pretty minor move. While it may not have the impact or the Tyler Seguin deal or involve an insane amount of money, this is a deal that can have a pretty big impact on the Hurricanes next season.

Matt Karash: State of the blue line after a couple days to digest Sekera/McBain trade

I concur on both accounts. IF the Canes somehow add a top 4 defenseman over the coming weeks, then...
