It’s Quiet In Carolina

from Luke DeCock of the News & Observer, Monday was a difficult day for a pair of former Carolina Hurricanes. The Buffalo Sabres decided not to bother even making a qualifying offer to Jamie McBain, a restricted free agent, and the Toronto Maple Leafs initiated buyout proceedings with Tim Gleason. Both lasted a season (or less) with their new teams after being considered...

SOCHI SCENE: Shattered - does it matter?

Preliminary? So what. Don't try to tell these Olympic hockey players to conserve their energy for elimination games. They're simply not playing that way in the Sochi Games. One day after the United States beat Russia in a thriller with relatively small stakes, Austria beat Norway 3-1 Sunday in a game that featured a glass-shattering check by Austria forward Andreas Nodl...

WATCH: Andreas Nodl body check shatters glass in Sochi

Austria and Norway faced off in Sochi on the last day of preliminary competition on Sunday, and not every pane of glass at Bolshoy Rink survived to see the elimination rounds. Austrian forward (and St. Cloud State alum) Andreas Nodl delivered a body check to Jonas Holos of Norway that shattered some glass near the penalty boxes during the second period. I guess we can add this to...

Frequent Flyer Miles: Hedberg released by Rangers, Nodl released from NLA club, Hlavac to Kladno

As the beginning of the NHL season nears, several former Philadelphia Flyers, draft picks of the team, and former members of the organization were involved in transactions this week. The biggest news might be the New York Rangers releasing Johan Hedberg, who was with the team on a Professional Try-Out. Hedberg, who was selected 218th overall by the Flyers in the 1994 NHL Entry Draft...

Frequent Flyer Miles: Nodl to play in Switzerland, Potulny’s injury results in departure from KHL

We are now at the point of the offseason where the biggest news related to former Philadelphia Flyers has reached Andreas Nodl signing in Switzerland and Ryan Potulny being released from a KHL squad. The list of players who were once linked to the Orange and Black and endured transactions this week is still rather long, but Nodl and Potulny are the only two who actually played a...

Former Carolina Hurricanes goaltending prospect John Muse has been signed by the Fort Wayne Komets of the ECHL. In addition, Andreas Nodl has been signed by Lausanne of the NLA in Switzerland. Muse’s first full professional season during the 2011-2012 season saw him spending time in both the ECHL and AHL, recording 15 games in Charlotte and 25 in Florida, where he shared netminding [...]

Getting the most out of the bottom-six

Heading into this season, the Hurricanes had the making of being a team that could roll all four lines effectively. Even after they traded for enforcer Kevin Westgarth, they could have probably gotten away with rolling four lines because the forwards before him each have a defined role and aren't liabilities at even strength. You had the top-six handle most of the scoring and...

Hurricanes shutout Ottawa 1-0

Carolina's game against the Ottawa Senators had all the makings of a disappointment for the home team. We've seen the Hurricanes get shut down by opposing goalie a few times this year and it looked like it was going to happen again tonight as Senators goalie Craig Anderson played about as good of a game as you can ask for. Carolina played their best first period of the season...

Checkers fall out of first place

For a good chunk of the season, the Charlotte Checkers had been sitting comfortably in first place in the AHL's Western Conference but their run at the top has come to an end as the top spot is now secured by the Texas Stars, who lead the Checkers by one point. This isn't due to a slump by the Checkers, though. They've won seven of their last 10 games and are still playing...

The Final Cuts

Earlier on Wednesday, the Carolina Hurricanes made the decision to put both Brett Sutter and Andreas Nodl on waivers, meaning that the Canes are very close to trimming their roster down to the 23 player limit.  Assuming they put Tuomo Ruutu on Long-Term Injured Reserve, the Canes would need to make one more cut to reach the limit and if they don't, then two players need to go...

Hurricanes sign Patrick Dwyer to a two-year extension

Even though the 2011-12 season may not start on time, Jim Rutherford and the Hurricanes front office have remained busy at work with their latest move being giving Patrick Dwyer a two-year contract extension worth a total of $1.8 mil. Dwyer would be entering the final year of his current contract this year, so the Hurricanes have him locked up until 2015 with this new deal. The contract...

Andreas Nodl 2011-12 Scoring Chances

Sometimes GMs will find hidden gems on the waiver wire and while Andreas Nod isn't exactly a diamond in the rough, he is a very useful player and the Hurricanes were able to get him for next to nothing at the end November. Nodl's career with the Hurricanes didn't have a great start as it took Kirk Muller a little over a month to find out Nodl's strengths and decide...

Patrick Dwyer 2011-12 Scoring Chances

If you look at the rosters for every team in the NHL, most of them will have a player like Patrick Dwyer in their bottom-six. Dwyer is a prototypical defensive forward who specializes in killing penalties, blocking shots and preventing chances and he does all three of those tasks very well for the Hurricanes. You could say that he's a "dime a dozen" player but what...

Improving the fourth line

An ongoing issue throughout the season is that neither coach has been rolling four lines as often as fans would like. Ideally, most coaches would like to roll four lines and have their fourth unit out there for around 8-10 minutes a game. The role of the fourth line depends on the coach and under Paul Maurice this season, the fourth line was barely used. That has somewhat changed...

Winnipeg Jets defenseman Zach Bogosian may receive a call from the NHL after his brutal hit on Andreas Nodl of the Carolina Hurricanes on Sunday. Bogosian left his feet to lower the boom on Nodl during the second period. He was given a five-minute major for charging and a game misconduct, while Nodl did not return in Carolina's 4-3 victory over Winnipeg. The third overall pick...

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Winnipeg Jets 3/18/12 Scoring Chances

It wasn't too long ago that Hurricanes fans dreaded the third period because the Canes would always seem to save their worst performance for that frame and ended up losing many games because of it. Over the last three games, the Canes have outscored their opponents 6-0 in the third period and have comeback wins in two of those games, as well. What is even more encouraging is...

The "first" game at the newly christened PNC Arena was a great one as the Hurricanes and Blues had themselves a good old fashioned goaltender duel between Cam Ward and Brian Elliott. Both netminders were tested plenty and played well enough to give their teams a chance to win but in the end, Carolina came out on top and Ward earned his 200th win with a 40-save shutout performance...

Carolina Hurricanes vs. Washington Capitals 3/6/12

Tuesday night's 4-3 overtime win over the Washington Capitals goes down as one of the most exciting Carolina games I have seen this year. With 85 combined shots and 44 scoring chances between both teams, you would expect an exciting contest. However, "exciting" and "good hockey" are not synonymous and this certainly was a sloppy played game by both teams....

Hurricanes Weekly Report 1/31 - 2/5

This was certainly a strange week for the Canes when you compare their shot data to scoring chances because while they were heavily outshot this past week, they actually outchanced their opponents overall. A large reason for this is because of the 47-save shutout they had against the Bruins last Thursday. That was a game where they were outshot by a wide-margin but a lot of the Bruins...
