In capturing the history of sports, photography has as important a role as the written word.
The epic photos taken of Muhammad Ali, Michal Jordan and Y.A. Tittle have as much of a lasting effect than legendary stories penned by Red Smith.

Much of the focus of this upcoming draft is based around what the Hurricanes will do with their first round pick, and rightfully so. The Hurricanes have a top-five pick in what is considered the best draft in years and have a very good chance of landing an elite prospect next month. The hype of adding someone like Jonathan Drouin, Valeri Nichushkin or Aleksander Barkov to your team...
Last night's 4-2 win over the Islanders was an ugly win for the Hurricanes, so it probably won't surprise you to hear that they were outchanced at even strength. The Canes have made somewhat of a habit of pulling out wins like this as last night was only the fifth time this season they were outchanced and the third time they won a game where that happened. I'm not sure...
Carolina went into last week with a depth chart that looked something like this:
Color key: Orange = Injured player, Blue = Not waiver exempt, Green = Non contract player
Since then, Carolina has seen five different players suffer injuries and now their depth looks more like this:
To sum things up, in the short span of one week the Hurricanes have a top-six...
Thanks to a plethora of injuries, the Hurricanes went into last night's game short on talent and forward depth and came away with their worst offensive performance of the season. Carolina's injury depleted lineup created only nine even strength scoring chances, four of which coming in the final two minutes of the second period, and eleven overall. Both are season lows for...
There weren't a lot of Hurricanes fans who were expecting the team to win tonight given the roster they were dressing. It's hard to expect much when your team is missing three top players along with one of their key special teams contributors. When said players are being replaced with guys from the AHL (one of which was jetted to the game on the same day), it was very important...
Tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs had the makings of being one of those old fashioned, high scoring run-and-gun style contests where the winner would be determined by who had the last shot on net. The Hurricanes, who haven't been good defensively this year, were missing two top-four defensemen in Joni Pitkanen and Tim Gleason while the Leafs have injuries all...

The Hurricanes finally return home after twelve long days on the road and they come into tonight's game against the Toronto Maple Leafs on a high note, winning four of six games on the road trip. Getting those wins were huge, but the Canes did not come out of this trip unscathed as...
Despite having a roster that lost most of their top players to injury and NHL graduation, the Charlotte Checkers managed to win two out of their three games this week and maintain a record that puts them tied for first in the AHL's Western Conference. None of these wins came easy, though as the Checkers had to make do with few players who were only recently called up from the...
There was a lot to be excited about with the Charlotte Checkers this weekend. The team had one of the best records in the AHL and just finished one of the toughest parts of their schedule where the majority of their games were on the road. This weekend's series against the Oklahoma City Barons was the first set of games of a long home-stand for the Checkers where they would play...
We are currently in what I refer to as the "doldrums" of the NHL off-season, meaning that the "madness" of free agency has gone by and there isn't much news except for maybe one or two signings per day. It's a little boring if you're a hockey blogger like me, but it's also nice because it gives you some extra down time to work on other projects...
Hours after Mike Halmo signed an entry-level contract with the Islanders, the Owen Sound Attack forward laid a devastating hit to Nail Yakupov, junior hockey’s top prospect.
The hit came with 8:43 left in the second period as Yakupov crossed into the slot, going one-on-one with an Attack defender. The defender was able to tap his stick and Yakupov lost control of the puck. At...
