2017-2018 Carolina Hurricanes Season


Recommended Posts

I figured I'd make a thread for the upcoming season since there is usually not enough activity to have a thread for each individual game.

Nonetheless, the Hurricanes kicked off the 2017-2018 NHL season with a preseason win over the Buffalo Sabres last night. Derek Ryan had 2 goals (including the game winner) and 1 assist, Josh Jooris added a goal, and Jeff Skinner, Haydn Fleury, and Trevor Van Riemsdyk each added an assist.

The Canes are icing a young lineup tonight against the Tamp Bay Lightning in their second preseason game and Justin Williams makes his return.

Teravainen/ Rask/ Williams

Nordstrom/ Kruger/ McGinn

Foegel/ Kuokkanen/ Gauthier

Bishop/ Poturalski/ Jooris






The Canes training camp roster currently sits at 54 players with Stelio Mattheos, Morgan Geekie, Hudson Elynuik, Noah Carroll, and Brendan De Jong having been returned to juniors.

A lot of guys get to prove their case for being the extra on the Canes roster going into October this pre-season. Nobody is certain because Charlotte is likely going to want to ice their best possible lineup to contend for the Calder Cup. If the young talent can perform we may have a chance to keep guys fresh and not have to worry as much about injuries as we have in the past. I'm particularly interested to see how the bottom 6 do tonight.

The Canes snagged another preseason victory with a 2-1 win over the Lightning tonight.

Justin Williams scored on the power play in his first game back with the Canes and Teravainen also added a power play goal as well as an assist; Trevor Carrick also picked up two assists and Rask had one assist.

Both Nedeljkovic and Booth played well as only one goal was allowed (Nedeljkovic) on 22 shots.

The refs seem to be trying to clean the game up this year as 18 total penalties were called (36 pim), Carolina had 10 of them.

I'll also mention the Canes returned goalie, Jeremy Helvig back to juniors. The roster currently stands at 53.

Canes downed the Caps last night 4-1 to go to 3-1 on the preseason.

Goals went to Justin Williams, Trevor Carrick, Julian Gauthier, and Justin Faulk; assists went to Jordan Staal, Justin Faulk, Valentin Zykov (2), Marcus Kruger, Trevor Carrick, and Teuvo Teravainen.

Today, the Canes assigned Patrick Brown, Andrew Miller, Julien Gauthier, Brenden Kichton, Roland McKeown, Dennis Robertson, and Philip Samuelsson to Charlotte. The roster stands at 33 with 10 cuts remaining. 

Jeremy Smith, Jake Chelios, Aleksi Saarela, Jake Bean, Nicolas Roy, Janne Kuokkanen, Lucas Wallmark, and Valentin Zykov are expected to be returned to Charlotte at some points.

While Haydn Fleury, Klas Dahlbeck, Trevor Carrick, Josh Jooris, Brock McGinn, Phil Di Giuseppe, and Martin Necas are all fighting for roster spots.

With the Panthers struggling, it's time for everyone to get on the Canes bandwagon.

Canes have whittled down the roster again. Roy, Saarela, and Zykov are on their way to Charlotte; Carrick, Chelios, and Smith will be joining them pending waivers.

Hopefully Carrick makes it through.

The Canes roster sits at 27 with...

Teravainen - Staal - Williams

Aho - Rask - Lindholm

Skinner - Ryan - ?

Nordstrom - Kruger - McGinn


Slavin - Faulk

Hanifin - Pesce

Fleury - Van Riemsdyk



Injured: Stempniak

I see 2 spots remaining for

Dahlbeck, Bean Di Guiseppe, Necas, Kuokkanen, Wallmark.

Based of performances I can see Dahlbeck as the 7th, PDG and Wallmark headed to Charlotte, and Necas or Kuoakkanen slotting in as the 3RW.

Tonight's the dress rehearsal before the real thing.

Canes going with:

Aho - Staal - Lindholm

Kuokkanen - Rask - Williams

Skinner - Ryan - Necas

Nordstrom - Kruger - McGinn

Slavin - Faulk

Hanifin - Pesce

Fleury - Van Riemsdy



Injured: Teravainen, Stempniak

Scratched: Jooris, Di Giuseppe, Wallmark, Dahlbeck

Looks like Kouk and Necas are going to battle it out for Stempniak's spot until he returns from injury; Teravainen is expected to be ready for the season opener.

I expect Jooris to be the healthy extra as Wallmark is too good/young to sit in the press box every night and PDG just really hasn't had a great camp.
