Reading Assignments

  • Justin Williams is embracing his elder statesman role on the Hurricanes roster. [NHL.com]
  • Yesterday was Boston Day on Adam and Joe’s Transplant Tuesday, so what better way to celebrate than by having the Hurricanes’ most recognizable Bostonian, Noah Hanifin, on the show? [WRALSportsFan.com (audio)]
  • And if you were worried about the Canes trading Hanifin for the apparently available David Pastrnak, Joe Haggerty looked at the Canes’ stat sheet from last year (although apparently none of the context) and poured cold water on that theory:
  • A new edition of the CanesCast is out, featuring youth & amateur hockey coordinator Shane Willis. [Hurricanes (audio)]
  • The Checkers have re-signed Mitchell Heard to a two-way AHL contract. (And, ergo, he’s eligible for the Canadian Olympic team!) [Checkers]
  • Bryan Murray’s legacy in hockey isn’t just limited to his teams on the ice. His fight with colon cancer raised awareness of the disease throughout the game. [TSN (video)]
  • Yep, it’s August: Steve Simmons used actual air time on an actual radio station to defend himself in light of Phil Kessel eating hot dogs out of the Stanley Cup. What a time to be alive. [Puck Daddy]
  • And meanwhile, Joshua Ho-Sang is just so zen about it all, man. [SBNation.com]
