Checkers, Boychuk back for another 'taste'

The Charlotte Checkers are back in PNC Arena to play hockey again, but Saturday won't be as momentous a day. Which has nothing to do with the Checkers or their AHL game against the Abbotsford Heat. A year ago, the Checkers had a Jan. 6 game against the Norfolk Admirals in the arena. The NHL was caught up in the lockout, although there were signs of progress the day before the...

Top 25 Under 25: #18 Zach Boychuk

Position: Left Wing/Center Height: 5'10" Weight: 185 lbs. Drafted: 1st Round, 2008 Age: 23 Last Year's Ranking: 12 I know what you're thinking. "Why is Zach Boychuk even on this list? He was waived by three different teams last year and will never make the NHL. Is he even with the Hurricanes?" I understand it, though. Boychuk hasn't mixed...

Nashville goes to the waiver wire for second time in two days, claims Boychuk from Penguins…

Monday it was Bobby Butler. Tuesday it was Zach Boychuk. The Nashville Predators are making a habit of using the waiver wire to try and improve their loathsome offense. The Preds have scored the fewest goals in the league (47), have the worse goals-per-game average (1.96) and the worst shots-per-game average (23.9). In short, they need some goal scorers. But, considering they can’t...

A new start for Zach Boychuk

The development of former Carolina Hurricanes first round pick Zach Boychuk has been scrutinized heavily in recent seasons. This is his fifth year in the organization and in that time, he has been able to succeed in the AHL but that hasn't translated to success at the next level as Boychuk has played only 73 games in the NHL, scoring seven goals and 18 points during that span...

Hurricanes Top 25 Under 25: #12 Zach Boychuk

Zach Boychuk is one of the Hurricanes most talented forward prospects and has more potential than almost everyone else on this list. He is also one of the organization's most frustrating players because he has still yet to do much of anything in the NHL despite being given multiple chances. He has played 78 games over four seasons (technically three if you want to nitpick) and...

Zach Boychuk's future in Carolina

Once upon a time, Zach Boychuk was the Carolina Hurricanes top prospect. He was selected in the first round of the 2008 NHL draft and was known for having great hands and huge scoring upside that any team would welcome. At the time, he had 82 goals and 214 points in 194 games in the WHL so it's easy to see why he was such a high draft pick. Everyone, myself included, thought...
