Hurricanes Prospect Update: 10/

The past week brought some mixed results for the Hurricanes prospect pool, as there were a couple of players who put up big numbers while a few others had some ugly performances. The good far outweighs the bad, though as Sergey Tolchinsky and Brock McGinn continued to light it up for their respective teams with a couple of multi-point games. Both are in the Top 10 in points in the...

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/22/2013

This was one of those rare weeks where the Hurricanes success was coupled with some good results from their prospects. The Canes OHL pool has been playing rather well this year as three of their prospects currently lead their respective teams in points and two of them are in the top 10 of the league. One of those players is Sergey Tolchinsky, who has continued to light it up for...

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/14/2013

It's that time of the week where we'll step away from Hurricanes news to discuss what has been going on with some of their prospects. Last week, they had three prospects leading their respective OHL clubs in points and saw big performances from forwards Sergey Tolchinsky and Brock McGinn. Who stood out in the Canes prospect pool this week? Skaters ...

Hurricanes OHL Prospect Update 10/7/2013

With the OHL season being a couple weeks old and college hockey just around the corner, it's now time for our weekly review of the Hurricanes prospects. The team's prospect pool isn't as widespread as it was last year, as most of their junior players have graduated to the professional level but there is some new blood in the system and a few of them have been doing well...

London Knights Max Domi suspended 4-games by the OHL (Video)

Max Domi of the London Knights, was suspended 4-games by the OHL for this dirty hit on Guelph Storm's Brock McGinn. As you can see from the video, Domi targeted the head of McGinn, and one could make the argument that Domi deserved more than a 4-game  suspension. Max Domi suspended four games. — Ryan Pyette (@RyanatLFPress) October 1, 2013

Matt Karash: Back to the future: Blog on Hurricanes line combations for 2012-13

First, the Canes prospects won 4-3 on Traverse City yesterday on goals by Victor Rask, Sergey Tolchinsky, Zack Mitchell and Brock McGinn. You can find the team's short write-up here HERE. Every once in awhile I like to take a look back at prediction type blogs from seasons past. Especially for projections, there are many more misses than hits over the course of a changing...

Matt Karash: The case for Brock McGinn

When you look at the pecking order of players battling for Canes roster positions for 2013-14, Brock McGinn is way down the list and clearly a long shot, dark horse and anything else you can say to suggest “not yet.” He was just drafted in 2012, is only 19 and has barely seen AHL ice (4 games after juniors ended) let alone NHL ice. But here’s the thing. The Canes...

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...

Hurricanes sign Brock McGinn to entry-level contract

The Hurricanes have signed yet another one of their junior prospects after coming to terms with Brock McGinn on a three-year entry level deal. McGinn was one of the team's 2nd round picks in last year's draft and he just finished his third season with the Guelph Storm with 26 goals and 54 points in 68 games. McGinn will be reporting to the Charlotte Checkers for the remainder...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update: NHLE Values

The Canadian Hockey League's regular season ended this weekend and some good news for Hurricanes fans is that many of their prospect's respective teams made the post-season and will have a chance to put themselves on the map this spring. Some of them are already well-known in the hockey community, but the playoffs are always a great opportunity for a player to create a lot...

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 Prospect Update: 1/21 - 1/28

The prospect reports are going to be presented differently from here on out. Instead of going through each player individually, we're going to go by leagues and note some of the standout performances. The reason for this is because there have often been a lot of cases where there wasn't much to report on for some players because they were either injured, suspended or didn...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update 1/14 - 1/20

It was a bad opening weekend for the Hurricanes, but one thing that fans can perhaps take solace in is that their CHL prospects all had terrific weeks for the most part. What does this mean? Well, not a whole lot in the grand scheme of things but it's hard not to get excited when you hear that one of your team's prospects had four goals in three games like Brock McGinn did...

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.

This is going to be a different update than ones in the past because we are at the part of the year where teams are returning from their holiday break and playing a partial schedule. There are also quite a few teams icing much different lineups due to the World Junior Championships currently going on right now. So, instead of looking at each player individually, I'm going to...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update: McGinn's big week

It has been a rough month of November for the Guelph Storm, as they have gone through a bit of a cold spell after starting off the season on a very strong note. They had won only three of their 10 games in November heading into last week and were losing ground in the race for the top spot of the Western Conference of the OHL. While the team wasn't playing very well, Hurricanes...

Just about every Hurricanes CHL prospect had an offensive explosion last week and I was very excited and cautiously optimistic to see how they would build off their performances? Why cautiously optimistic you ask? Because while they definitely showed how good they could be last week, the majority of them had been struggling up until that point and this could have been just a flash...

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.

I am usually not one to panic or jump to irrational conclusions but it's hard not to get a little frustrated when you look at the scoring lines of most of the Hurricanes CHL prospects so far this year. The leader in points is Trevor Carrick with four points in eight games and their top prospect, Ryan Murphy, has only one point in eight games. Adding to that, there have been only...
