With the light cross-conference schedule previously (only played away every other year for awhile), Edmonton is not a common stop on the Canes schedule. Cam Ward who won a Conn Smythe traveling back-and-forth from Edmonton in the summer of 2006 gets a rare Edmonton start.

Goaltending depth is an issue that has plagued Carolina for years. Ever since Cam Ward led this team to a Stanley Cup in 2006, the Hurricanes have struggled to find him a decent back-up and he often finds himself playing around 60-70 games a year.
