The Naple Daily News posted a really thorough article Tuesday on the progress of former Hurricanes' second-round pick Nate Hagemo. Hagemo, who was invited to the Canes' rookie conditioning camp this summer, is trying to earn a spot with Carolina's ECHL affiliate, the Florida Everblades.
Hagemo's drug problems and run-ins with the law are well-documented, and it's good to see him continuing to try and get his life on the right path. Carolina owns the rights to the talented defenseman, who was selected by the Hurricanes with the 58th overall pick in 2005, until 2009.
