Booth strikes twice as Wild fail in pathetic fashion in 5-2 loss to Vancouver

If you're on Twitter, especially in the home stretch, injuries and illnesses that keep a player out of the lineup even for one game can appear to be magnified.  At least by the fans they certainly are as fans delight that (insert player here) is out with the flu or a really nasty lower body injury (i.e. hangnail).  But should fans and especially teams relish that kind of information...

Hurricanes 2013 Development Camp Notes: Thursday Morning

The Hurricanes continued their great coverage of this year's development camp by hosting another live look-in of a closed practice. Today's session featured the prospects going through power-skating drills with instructor Kim Muir, so there wasn't a ton to watch for outside of that but there were some definite standouts. Skating is a vital part of today's game, so...

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 sign Keegan Lowe to entry-level contract

There is going to be no shortage of young talent in training camp this fall as the Hurricanes followed up their signing of Danny Biega yesterday by inking 19-year-old defenseman Keegan Lowe to a three-year entry-level contract today. Lowe was the Hurricanes 3rd round pick in the 2011 draft and is currently playing his fourth season with the Edmonton Oil Kings of the Western Hockey...

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 2/3 - 2/10

The playoff races are beginning to heat up in the CHL and the good news for Hurricanes fans is that many of the team's prospects should be in the post-season this spring, which will give everyone a chance to get a closer look at their performance. One team that has already clinched a playoff spot in Keegan Lowe's Edmonton Oil Kings and Lowe himself has played a pretty big...

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...

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: 1/1 - 1/7

This was an interesting week for junior hockey, as there were a few teams playing without some of their top players with the World Junior Championship in Ufa, Russia. You could consider this a time for some of the "secondary" players on their teams to step up while the stars are out, which it is for some teams like the Niagara Ice Dogs who were missing at least three of...

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...

Hurricanes CHL Prospect Update: Murphy continues to improve

The junior hockey season has been an odd one so far, or at least it has for a lot of the teams currently housing Carolina Hurricanes prospects. Take Ryan Murphy's Kitchener Rangers for instance, they were struggling a fair bit at the start of the year but have straited to turn things in the right direction over the past few weeks. They won all three of their games in the last...

Hurricanes Prospect Update: CHL (10/21 - 10/28)

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...

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 Prospect Update: CHL (10/9 - 10/15)

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...

It was good to see those players stand out but some of the team's more highly touted prospects such as Ryan Murphy had very quiet performances...

The Hurricanes did not have a good season but there were quite a few players in the system who got a taste of the playoffs in their respective leagues this year. One of those players was defenseman Keegan Lowe of the Edmonton Oil Kings. Lowe served as alternate captain on the WHL champion Oil Kings and was also one of their top defensemen. His team was unable to capture the Memorial...

Did you ever read Comic Books as a kid?  I read just a few, a few issues of Spider Man and that was about it.  These 'Graphic Novels' had interesting stories, great artwork but all of them sort of followed a similar formula.  When I bought these Comics in the early 1980's, like most kids I never put much thought into their future value.  I didn't abuse the comic...
