12/16 Game Thread: Canes vs. Red Wings Puck Drop: As Soon As They Can Put a Healthy Team on the Ice


Recommended Posts

RALEIGH, NC. - Tonight will be anything but typical for the Carolina Hurricanes, as they dress a shorthanded lineup against the Detroit Red Wings.

Due to COVID-19 Protocols and salary cap constraints, the team is only able to dress 16 skaters and two goaltenders this evening, two skaters short of a normal NHL lineup.

Currently the following skaters are out due to measures caused by the virus (alphabetical, last): Sebastian Aho, Ian Cole, Seth Jarvis, Steven Lorentz, Jordan Staal, Andrei Svechnikov.

This morning the team was able to recall Jack Drury from Chicago to take the roster spot vacated by Jalen Chatfield moving to injured reserve on Tuesday.

In addition to Drury, the team was granted two emergency exemptions by the NHL to reach the 16, selecting Stefan Noesen and Andrew Poturalski.

Lastly, Brett Pesce and Tony DeAngelo are set to return for the first time in 17 days. The two were removed from protocol last Thursday, however, could not join the team in Canada and then Tuesday's game was postponed.

The team's projected lineup for this evening against the Red Wings is as follows:


Niederreiter - Trocheck - Necas

Teravainen - Kotkaniemi - Fast

Drury - Stepan - Noesen - Poturalski



Slavin - DeAngelo

Skjei - Pesce

Smith - Bear

This is so stupid. Getting 100% vaccination should give us leeway to choose if we want to reschedule this.

The whole league minus two players and a few fudgers are vaccinated though so we don’t really have a leg up there. It it’s like this is the NFL, where they don’t really give a fug.

Meant to post this here…

Telling everyone right now that you will be impressed with Jack.

He may not be as noticeable offensively as Jarvis quite yet but his overall impact will be more noticeable. He plays a lot like his uncle Chris and is the perfect RBA player. Remember, he’s been playing against grown men for a few years now so don’t be surprised if he fits right in.
