With the OHL season being a couple weeks old and college hockey just around the corner, it's now time for our weekly review of the Hurricanes prospects. The team's prospect pool isn't as widespread as it was last year, as most of their junior players have graduated to the professional level but there is some new blood in the system and a few of them have been doing well...
First, the Canes prospects won 4-3 on Traverse City yesterday on goals by Victor Rask, Sergey Tolchinsky, Zack Mitchell and Brock McGinn. You can find the team's short write-up here HERE.
Every once in awhile I like to take a look back at prediction type blogs from seasons past. Especially for projections, there are many more misses than hits over the course of a changing...

In typical early August fashion, there is not a ton of new earth-shattering Canes...
When you look at the pecking order of players battling for Canes roster positions for 2013-14, Brock McGinn is way down the list and clearly a long shot, dark horse and anything else you can say to suggest ânot yet.â He was just drafted in 2012, is only 19 and has barely seen AHL ice (4 games after juniors ended) let alone NHL ice. But hereâs the thing. The Canes...
The Hurricanes have signed yet another one of their junior prospects after coming to terms with Brock McGinn on a three-year entry level deal. McGinn was one of the team's 2nd round picks in last year's draft and he just finished his third season with the Guelph Storm with 26 goals and 54 points in 68 games. McGinn will be reporting to the Charlotte Checkers for the remainder...
It has been a rough month of November for the Guelph Storm, as they have gone through a bit of a cold spell after starting off the season on a very strong note. They had won only three of their 10 games in November heading into last week and were losing ground in the race for the top spot of the Western Conference of the OHL. While the team wasn't playing very well, Hurricanes...

A seriously light schedule on Sunday with just 2 New York Islander prospects in action and no New York Ranger prospects. Andrey Pedan (NYI 2011 3rd) and his Guelph Storm were looking to extend their unbeaten streak to 9 games against the Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.
The Storm behind Pedan's 1-2-3 evening had little problem with the Greyhounds whipping...
