Morning Line - Chad LaRose

"But I couldn't give somebody me, I couldn't give them 100 percent of me. I wasn't into the game anymore and I didn't think it was fair to give somebody 60 or 70 percent of me. "I had just built up a lot of anger towards the game. I wanted to get away. I didn't know that I would ever play again, to be honest. … I fell out of love with the sport...

Chad LaRose returns, signs an AHL deal with Carolina Hurricanes’ affiliate

This isn't blockbuster news, but Chad LaRose basically disappeared off the hockey map for a year (kind of like what Ian White's done now), and this evening, it appears that LaRose is going to attempt to make an NHL comeback the old-fashioned way, via an AHL deal with the Hurricanes' developmental affiliate. Per the Charlotte Checkers: The Charlotte Checkers have...

After 10 years, Hurricanes LaRose exits as quietly as he entered

Ten years ago Tuesday on Aug. 6 2003 the Carolina Hurricanes made a routine and barely noticed offseason signing of a 21-year-old undrafted prospect who was unlikely to ever make a ripple in the hockey world at large let alone in the NHL let alone the Hurricanes. He scored at will in junior hockey but for three years in a row no NHL team was willing to draft a player who was optimistically...

Storm Aftermath: Chad LaRose

Debates and arguments about Chad LaRose have been really hard to avoid over the last few years if you follow the Hurricanes. The small but gritty forward is a favorite to a lot of Caniacs because of his character, work ethic and tough playing style. All of these qualities made him one of Carolina's more well-known players and he has definitely had a lot of great moments over...

Chad LaRose 2012-13 Season Projection

This may sound like blasphemy to some people, but Chad LaRose was one of the Hurricanes better forwards last season. No, he doesn't have the best skillset, never puts up dazzling numbers and was probably over-slotting in the top-six but he did a lot of good things for this club that got overlooked. LaRose is never going to be known as a goal-scoring threat or a top forward but...

Chad LaRose 2011-12 Scoring Chances

Chad LaRose is one player who I've spent a lot of time defending this season because while he doesn't always make the best decisions and isn't an ideal top-line winger, he simply got the job done when it came to generating scoring chances and possession. He isn't a star player and will probably never score more than 35 points, but he can be used just about anywhere...
