The Carolina Hurricanes enter their fourth preseason game with a perfect 3-0-0 record, having scored four or more goals in every one of those games. Monday’s game against the Columbus Blue Jackets will now be their penultimate exhibition game after the previously postponed game against the Tampa Bay Lightning was canceled.

The Canes and their staff still have plenty of decisions to make, so the remaining games and camp time will be meaningful for the players fighting for roster positions. One player who earned a roster position is Calvin de Haan, who signed a one-year, $850k contract this weekend.

The Canes have been rotating between NHL-heavy rosters and prospect-heavy rosters, and if that is to continue, it's expected that the Canes would roll out a more NHL-heavy roster tonight. This game could also mark the first time the Canes have faced Johnny Goudreau in a Blue Jackets uniform.

Here are tonight’s game groups:
