Hurricanes Qualify Seven Players

The Carolina Hurricanes today extended qualifying offers to forwards Zach Boychuk, Greg Nemisz, Justin Shugg, Jared Staal and Jiri Tlusty and defensemen Michal Jordan and Rasmus Rissanen, retaining their restricted free agent statuses. Tlusty is perhaps the most notable name on this list, as he led the team with 23 goals in the 2012-13 48-game season. Last year, Tlusty tallied 30...

finally someone puts the hammer down

It goes to show how much faith we have in our hockey media, or really just the media in general, that when the tweets start happening our first instinct is to assume that within a few hours, it’ll be redacted, or turn out to mean something else entirely.  But Bob McKenzie, who is essentially the Frank Worsley of NHL coverage, did not lead us astray. Read those tweets though,...

Checkers, Boychuk back for another 'taste'

The Charlotte Checkers are back in PNC Arena to play hockey again, but Saturday won't be as momentous a day. Which has nothing to do with the Checkers or their AHL game against the Abbotsford Heat. A year ago, the Checkers had a Jan. 6 game against the Norfolk Admirals in the arena. The NHL was caught up in the lockout, although there were signs of progress the day before the...

Mike Augello: Disinterested, Disorganized Leafs Drilled In Carolina

The post-Winter Classic funk continued with disastrous results for the Toronto Maple Leafs, as Carolina Hurricanes scored early and often in a 6-1 pummeling at PNC Arena in Raleigh, NC. Zach Boychuk, Jeff Skinner, Patrick Dwyer, John-Michael Liles, Jordan Staal and Elias Lindholm scored for the Hurricanes, who with the victory move into the second wild card spot in the Eastern...

Hurricanes rally for 5-4 overtime win over Canadiens

The Carolina Hurricanes ended a five-game winless streak and closed 2013 with a victory. And what a victory it was. Alexander Semin’s goal lifted the Canes to a wild 5-4 overtime win against the Montreal Canadiens at PNC Arena on Tuesday night, leaving everyone in a festive mood on New Year’s Eve. Trailing 3-0 after two periods, the Canes appeared headed to another deflating...

Matt Karash: Quick Mon practice update + Zach Boychuk + Matt Corrente "inside the game"

The report out of Canes practice today was mostly that of injuries. Gleason, Semin and Ruutu all took the day off. None of these are said to be serious injuries. All 3 are sort of day-to-day. Elias Lindholm did not take part in practice but did conditionings skating afterward. Minus 3 regular forwards, I do not think there was much to be gleaned from who skated with whom at...

Matt Karash: Hurricanes Training Camp: Update + Mon-Wed practice preview

On Sunday, the Canes put Justin Peters, Zach Boychuk, Jared Staal, Nicolas Blanchard, Zach Boychuk, Aaron Palushaj and Michal Jordan on waivers with intent to send them to Charlotte whose training camp starts Monday. Each of these players must clear waivers, meaning that any other NHL team can claim them as long as it is willing to keep them at the NHL level. If my count is right...

Matt Karash: The Zach Boychuk blog: Best people story 4 days into Canes training camp

If you are checking in after a weekend away from the internet because of the beautiful weather in Raleigh, you can find my notes from yesterday’s Red-White scrimmage HERE. Deservedly noted in the scrimmage report is the play of Zach Boychuk. After notching 2 goals in the scrimmage on Saturday, he was noticeably good and just noticeably noticeable jamming with Tim Gleason...

Training Camp Battles: 3rd Line Left Wingers

Continuing our look at what positions could be up for grabs during training camp, we will stay on the third line and look at which players will be battling for the two wing spots on the third line. In my post on the team's battle for the third line center, I mentioned that it's basically open season for all of the Hurricanes bottom-six and they still need to figure out what...

What is keeping the Hurricanes from signing Sergey Tolchinsky?

If you were following any of the Hurricanes development camp, then chances are you've heard a lot about Sergey Tolchinsky. He was invited to camp as an undrafted player and has really caught the attention of a lot of people. He was easily the best skater during the morning practices, showed a very creative skillset in shootout drills and was the best player on the ice during...

The State of Carolina's Prospects: Left Wingers

A few days ago, we reviewed Carolina's prospect depth at center and talked about how the Hurricanes are in relatively good shape at this position in both the present and future. The same can't be said about the wingers, specifically the left wing. At the NHL level, they have Jeff Skinner and Jiri Tlusty, who are both in their early to mid-20's so their top-six is set...

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...

Untapped Resources: Do some of Carolina's younger players deserve more of a chance?

One of the many things that I like about Kirk Muller is that he has been willing to give many young players a chance to succeed. Since his arrival, Muller has been the "Anti-Paul Murice" of sort where he has given most of the Hurricanes younger players top-nine minutes during their call-ups instead of just plugging them into checking line roles. He sort of did this out...
