The State of Carolina's Prospects: Right Wing

When analyzing a team's draft needs, it's important to look at what kind of position they are in for both the present and the future because an area that might not currently be a position of need could easily be on in another few years. This is the spot the Hurricanes are in now at right wing. At the NHL level, they have plenty of talent with Alexander Semin and Tuomo Ruutu...

Charlotte Checkers Statistical Stars

The Charlotte Checkers season came to a disappointing end last weekend when they lost their first-round series to the Oklahoma City Barons on the heels of two blowout losses. Disappointing ending aside, it was a great season for Charlotte as the team managed to finish fourth in their conference despite using 42 different skaters and having to deal with numerous roster changes once...

The future of the Charlotte Checkers

Hockey was indeed alive and well in North Carolina during the lockout, as the Charlotte Checkers got off to one of their best starts in team history and have the second best record in the AHL at 23-11-2-3. Their performance during the lockout was very promising for the Hurricanes organization because most of Charlotte's top players were younger players who the Hurricanes drafted...

Checkers win two of three in the Lonestar State

Before this weekend, the Charlotte Checkers had been involved in only one shootout all season and it came on opening weekend against the Texas Stars. They ended up on the losing end of that game and found themselves in a similar situation this past weekend against the same opponent, oddly enough. The shootout wasn't a major weakness for this team last year but they definitely...

Checkers sweep Rivermen in weekend series

The Charlotte Checkers domination of the Peoria Rivermen continued this weekend as they took both games against them in two-game series this weekend. These two wins did not come as easily as they did a couple weeks ago, though as the Rivermen put up a much stronger fight and responded well after getting shutout in back-to-back games. Still, in the end it was the Checkers who came...

"Puck hogs" on the Carolina Hurricanes

If you haven't been keeping up with NHL Numbers over the past week, then you missed a fantastic post from Benjamin Wendorf where he examined which players in the NHL could be labelled as "puck hogs." A puck hog being a player who takes an unproportionally high amount of shots compared to his linemates. Whether or not a player being a "puck hog" is a good or...

Charlotte Checkers Weekend Report: at Grand Rapids & Peoria

How good were the Checkers this weekend? Let's see, they won all three of their games (on the road nonetheless), outscored their opponents 16-4, outshot them 101-70, went 8/16 on the powerplay and were perfect on the penalty kill. I should also mention that all but five players who suited up for the Checkers this weekend recorded at least one point and have four players who are...

Checkers Weekend Report (10/19 - 10/21)

After earning points in both games last weekend, the Checkers continued their hot start to the season by taking two of their three games this weekend, improving their record to 3-1-1. The Checkers started things off on the right foot with a 3-2 win over the Milwaukee Admirals and carried the momentum over to the next night by beating the Rockford Ice Hogs 2-1. Unfortunatley, they...

The Charlotte Checkers came into Milwaukee tonight on a mission. Just over six months ago, their season ended on the Bradley Center ice as the Milwaukee Admirals defeated them to move into post-season play in a winner take all season finale. Add this to the fact that the Checkers returned 18 players from last years team including leading scorer Chris Terry, while the Admirals had...

What history says about the Hurricanes players: Prospects/fringe players

To close out our look at Rob Vollman's historical projections for the Carolina Hurricanes players, we are going to look at what might be in store for some of the fringe players in the organization who may see some time with the big club. By my definition a "fringe" player is either a prospect or younger player who has a chance to make the team out of camp but could...

Hurricanes Top 25 Under 25: #24 Jerome Samson

Most Hurricanes fans are familiar with Jerome Samson. He's been a regular with the team's AHL club for five years, which dates back to the time when their affiliate was in Albany. He has gotten to play 46 games with the Hurricanes over the last three years and finally tallied his first NHL goal this past season, which might be a surprise when you look at his AHL numbers over...

Charlotte Checkers Shot Translations

A few months ago, I used Gabe Desjardins' NHL equivalency values to project how some of the Hurricanes prospects might perform at the NHL level. The general idea behind equivalency values is that it is more difficult to play in one league than it is another and the NHL is top league in the world. Therefore, it is harder to score in the NHL than it is in the AHL, Swedish Elite...

Jerome Samson 2011-12 Scoring Chances

Last season, one of my favorite call-ups from Charlotte was Jerome Samson. He didn't score a goal in the 23 games he played in, but he was effective at getting shots on goal and creating scoring chances. I felt that he would be effective in a depth role and would eventually get on the scoresheet if he continued to do the same things he did last year. Samson didn't make the...

In cases like this, goaltending is usually the problem but not this week. Justin Peters was...

The injury bug hit Carolina again earlier this week when it was announced that Tuomo Ruutu would miss three weeks with an "upper-body injury."

Just to rub salt into the wound, Ruutu has been a key...
