  1. If you are new to hockey and the Canes, these accounts are essential follows to stay connected with all the team news: Canes official team account Michael Smith - beat reporter Mike Maniscalco - broadcast play by play guy Tripp Tracy - broadcast color analyst and interesting person Abby Labar - broadcast sideline analyst Cory Lavalette - beat reporter Sara Civian - beat reporter Alec Campbell - radio pre & postgame host Chicago Wolves - new AHL developmental team for Carolina Canes Country - SB Nation blog for Canes
  2. Geekie got officially called up from the taxi squad. Good depth to have.
  3. The Canes captain was added to the NHL COVID-19 protocol list last night. Does not mean he has COVID, could likely a precaution. Expect NHL PPG leader Morgan Geekie (former Charlotte Checkers standout) to take his spot in the lineup. Hopefully Staal can come back quickly, but the Canes have solid depth and Detroit is not a top tier team.
  4. Still counts! It is really hard to see. Had to watch it a bunch of times.
  5. A scoring change means Turbo hits a milestone. Great to see this guy succeed in Carolina. Just puts his head down and quietly works and helps the team win. He's on a super team-friendly deal and compliments Aho perfectly.
  6. Looks like Carolina will roll with Mrazek/Optimus Reim/Ned as the goalie trio this season. This actually could end up being an area of strength for the team. Petr looked solid last night/ Antoine Bibeau will be the lone Canes goalie playing for the Chicago AHL squad. https://www.tsn.ca/winnipeg-jets-claim-g-anton-forsberg-off-waivers-from-carolina-hurricanes-1.1577779
  7. Happy but never satisfied. I think that the lack of preseason games may impact some times, but the Canes did play over the summer. This team might need a bit more time to gel, but the new lines were solid overall.
  8. Canes looked solid tonight. An early score by Nino set the tone and they played hard. Big hit from Skjei, some fighting from Dougie and some late game goals to seal the deal. Undefeated!
  9. Don't worry! The learning curve is not that intense and Canes fans are among the most welcoming in hockey. It's basically soccer on ice but 100X faster and with more fighting and action.
  10. Lots of former checkers on the taxi squad, and I expect plenty of these guys to get minutes because of the schedule format. RBA said Bean looked awesome at camp and we all saw Geekie in action at the end of last season. If they get minutes they'll produce.
  11. The team announced the opening night roster: https://www.nhl.com/hurricanes/news/canes-announce-2020-21-opening-night-roster/c-320234206 Five players I'm most excited to watch this season: Andrei Svechnikov - Arguably the most exciting young player in the game. This is the season he becomes a household name. Martin Necas - If he takes another step forward, the Canes could have a crazy good top six. Nino Niederreiter - Dude struggled last year. If he steps up, this offense could be one of the best in the division. Haydn Fleury - We've been waiting a while for
  12. Jordan Martinook (or Marty) has been the heart of this team, plays with a ton of heart and is a total goofball. He'll scream like this before every game to get the squad hyped up.
  13. Jordan Martinook is a player we can all get behind:
  14. Thank you Zod, you are as handsome as you are charming and also a fantastic CEO. I hope to give you pie one day.
