A message to Caniacs from Jordan!

A post shared by Carolina Hurricanes (@nhlcanes) on

  • Martinook caught up with Mike Maniscalco [Canes.com] then joined Adam and Joe to talk about the best week of his life, Metallica, and his... let’s just call it what it is... BROMANCE with Andrei Svechnikov [WRALSportsFan].
  • Speaking of which:

  • The TSN Insiders caught up on all the latest trade and signing rumors; unsurprisingly a few Canes players made the discussion [TSN].
  • Pierre LeBrun, a member of the TSN Insider panel, went into a bit more detail in his weekly Notebook [Athletic $].
  • Player and puck tracking debuted at the NHL All Star Game, and before long it will be the new normal, though with a few kinks to work out first [ESPN].
  • Jimmy Fallon showed off his dance moves on the jumbotron at MSG last night, which is probably why the Rangers ended up being shut out by the Flyers amirite? [NHL.com]
  • The Minnesota Wild inked goaltender Alex Stalock to a three-year contract extension yesterday [Hockey Wilderness].
  • Yesterday the NHL and NHLPA jointly announced that Nashville Predators forward Austin Watson has been suspended indefinitely and admitted into Stage Two of the the Substance Abuse and Behavioral Health Program [Tennessean].
  • And, a thoughtful analysis of the implications of Watson’s situation on the Predators and how it could affect their decisions leading up to the trade deadline [Athletic $].
  • Need a game to watch while the Canes are on their bye week? Check out the Penguins versus the Lightning tonight, not only for John Forslund’s call, but for expert commentary from Olympic gold medalist and NHL All-Star Game sensation Kendall Coyne Schofield [NHL on NBC].
  • Last but not least, a follow-up to a previous report. Remember our underfed but intrepid Micheal Ferland fan from the Ottawa game? Well, she seems to be faring well despite the hunger strike, and yesterday she got to meet her favorite hockey player. Thanks for sharing the moment with us! Hope she put in a good word.
