  • The TBJ released its list of the top corporate philanthropists for 2016 yesterday. The whole list is behind a paywall, but the Hurricanes checked in at ninth, not a bad spot on a list that includes such heavy hitters as Duke Energy, GlaxoSmithKline and Wells Fargo. [Triangle Business Journal]
  • Here’s the annual “why won’t a team use an offer sheet to sign a player?” lament, with the Hurricanes prominently featured. [SBNation.com]
  • Mika Zibanejad settled with the Rangers yesterday during his arbitration hearing, and his new five-year contract comes with high expectations. [New York Post]
  • Meanwhile, it’s a one-year contract for Mark Streit to return to Montreal, where he began his career years ago. [Canadiens]
  • The Canadian national team named its management group yesterday for the cycle that includes the 2018 Winter Olympics, and old friend Scott Walker will be assisting Willie Desjardins behind the bench. [Hockey Canada]
