Hurricanes 2013 Development Camp Notes: Wednesday morning

In case you missed it, the Hurricanes were nice enough to stream today's morning practice from their player development camp on their web site. This year's camp features 26 players including the majority of their draft picks of the last few years along with a handful of undrafted players. It's tough to get a grip on all of these players because this was only a two hour...

The State of Carolina's Prospects: Defense

Defense has been the Hurricanes biggest need for what feels like years now .They are consistently one of the worst teams in the league at preventing shots and have had to rely on their goaltenders to win more games than they would like. It's frustrating to watch and generally not a successful strategy going forward. The defense corps itself isn't the only problem because...

Hilarious! Pitcher Tackles Runner at Home Plate

Usually when there’s a collision at the plate the catcher’s involved, and someone has the ball. Not in this case however. It happened at Berry College in Mount Berry, Ga., in a Div. III game against Hendrix College of Conway, Ark. Berry’s Levi Austin threw a wild pitch, and Conway’s Colin Radack sped down the line from third for what looked like an easy run. [Continue Reading...

Division III College Pitcher Forgets He is Playing Baseball

The things that go through people's minds these days are amazing. Take this pitcher for Hendrix College--Levi Austin. For some odd reason he thought it would be okay to just body-check the base runner from Berry College rather than have him cross the plate and score. He nearly got a bench clearing brawl going, but I think even his team knew he did something incredibly stupid...

Pitcher Takes ‘Blocking The Plate’ To a Whole New Level

During a Division III Southern Athletic Association series game recently, a pitcher lost it for a few seconds and applied some rugby skills to a baseball game. The game featured the Hendrix College baseball team against Berry College, and not to ruin it for you but Berry won 9-7. Levi Austin, a senior right-hander from Berry College, was on the mound when he had one of the better...

During a Division III baseball game Sunday, a Hendrix University runner was tackled by a pitcher from Berry University as he was trying to score from third on a wild pitch. Berry pitcher Levi Austin threw a pitch low an inside to Hendrix batter Matthew Simmons which got away from catcher Devin Skelton.

Division III pitcher will do anything to prevent a run, including tackling a runner trying to score

That’s a first for me. During a game between Division III Berry College and Hendrix College, a rather strange occurrence took place when the Berry College pitcher, after uncorking a wild pitch with a runner on 3rd, threw a beautiful body block on the runner scampering home in a vain attempt at preventing him from scoring. As good an open field tackle as it was, the Hendrix player...

Hurricanes Prospect Update 2/11 - 2/17

Big offensive performances are somewhat common in junior hockey and you'll often see more than a few players record at least a point in every game they played in a given week. We've seen this a few times with the Hurricanes CHL prospects this year as both Ryan Murphy and Brock McGinn have put together some impressive offensive weeks over their career but none of their recent...

Hurricanes Prospect Update 1/29 - 2/2

Prospects sometimes become a bit of an afterthought when the NHL season gets rolling, but don't think we have forgot about them, as there is still a lot to report on regarding those in Carolina's system. This week wasn't as eventful as the last, but there were a couple big standouts. The most notable one was clearly Phil Di Giuseppe who had five points in two games with...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update: 1/8 - 1/13

This is an exciting time for many junior hockey players, as a select grouping of them just returned from participating in the World Junior Championships in Ufa, Russia. If that wasn't enough, the NHL training camps just started up and there were plenty of junior hockey players invited to join the teams who own their NHL rights for a chance at playing in the big leagues. Even...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update: Levi makes impact on return

The expectations for Hurricanes 2010 third round pick Austin Levi were somewhat high heading into this season. He started the year in camp with the Charlotte Checkers but ended up being one of the final cuts and is now playing his fifth year with the Plymouth Whalers. Seeing how this is his Overage year and he has gotten better with every season, there was little reason to think...

Hurricanes Prospect Update: CHL (10/15 - 10/22)

Up until last week, the performance of Carolina Hurricanes prospects that are currently playing in the Canadian Hockey League has been a bit underwhelming to say the least. That all changed this past weekend as almost every Carolina prospect had an explosive performance and have finally started to make more of an impact on the scoresheet than they were before. The biggest name in...

Hurricanes Top 25 Under 25: #15 Mark Alt

Earlier in the week, I talked about the development of defenseman Austin Levi and how he was a very raw talent when the Hurricanes selected him. He was a phenomenal athlete but a lot of scouts questioned whether or not he could put his talent together and turn into a great a player. A similar criticism was directed towards today's player of focus and #15 in our Top 25 Under 25...

Hurricanes Top 25 Under 25: #17 Ausitn Levi

One of the benefits of having a team owner who also operates a OHL team is getting the inside scoop on some of the prospects there. It has been something the Carolina Hurricanes have been taking advantage of the last few seasons with the Plymouth Whalers, who are owned by Peter Karmanos. A good number of Carolina prospects over the years have played some of their junior hockey in...
