Sizing up Blue Jackets' Metro opponents: Carolina Hurricanes

The Columbus Blue Jackets made the trade for Scott Hartnell just a few days prior to the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, adding character and skill to their lineup. With no big free agent moves, the 2014-15 roster looks a lot like last year's roster. This is not a bad thing for the young team. Columbus ended last year with one of the two wild card spots in the Eastern Conference. Although...

Canes’ top draft pick hopes to make NHL quickly

Being a first-round draft pick – even a top 10 draft pick – carries no guarantees when it comes to playing in the NHL. That’s especially true for defensemen.

This was almost the Carolina Hurricanes logo in 1997

[s/t icethetics]. When the Hartford Whalers were relocated to Carolina in 1997, it looks like The Mednick Group - who were hired by the NHL to create a new logo for the Hurricanes - tried their best to convert the famous "HW" icon into a "CH". The colour scheme does look a little dull, but this would have been a very interesting logo if it had made it to the ice...

Do You Consider The Carolina Hurricanes A Playoff Team?

from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer, Peter Karmanos Jr. turned heads a few days ago when he said the Carolina Hurricanes were a “very good hockey team.” Karmanos is the Canes’ owner, and a little hubris is to be expected.
