An amazing gift from the Hurricanes, a Devante Smith-Pelly jinx, and Svechnikov getting comfortable with the Raleigh media.

Future teammates?

  • After family tragedy struck, the Hurricanes went above and beyond for their biggest fan.
  • Capitals forward Devante Smith-Pelly appears to have his mind made up about whether or not he would visit the White House if his team lifted the cup (Couple this statement with an abysmal history up 3-1 in a series and it feels like a jinx to me).
  • Pierre LeBrun reports that the Hurricanes are interested in Capitals backup and soon to be RFA Philipp Grubauer. He also mentions that Jeff Skinner’s pricetag is something like a first round pick and a prospect. [The Athletic ($)]
  • ABC11 interviewed General Manager Don Waddell as well as Andrei Svechnikov yesterday during the top prospect’s visit to Raleigh.
  • Longtime Raleigh area hockey referee Kevin Universal, is being honored by USA hockey as Adult Member of the Year. [NSJ]
  • Raleigh native and prospect in the 2018 NHL Draft, Tyler Weiss is one to root for. [The Athletic ($)] (And we profiled him here last December!)
  • The Hurricanes and likely second overall pick Andrei Svechnikov are getting to know each other as the draft quickly approaches. [N&O]
  • Svechnikov thinks that he can bring some much needed physicality to the Hurricanes top six. [WRAL Sports Fan]
