In Case You Missed It
- Jordan Staal scores hat trick in Hurricanes’ 5-2 win over Ducks
- They Said It: Brind’Amour, Slavin, Staal, Svechnikov on home win over Ducks
- Jordan Staal’s hat trick, his first with the Canes, broke a long-standing NHL record Sunday evening (also holy cow, what a name Dit Clapper is).
It's been almost 14 years since Jordan Staal's last hat trick. Just a friendly reminder that the @Canes captain has still got the scoring touch. #NHLStats: https://t.co/55geAWNwnS pic.twitter.com/pLpEZOCFKX— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) April 11, 2022
- Speaking of big Hurricanes’ accomplishments, Frederik Andersen is tied for the second most wins in a goaltenders first 50 games with a team in NHL history (Bill Durnan is significantly less cool of a name than Dit Clapper).
Frederik Andersen recorded his 34th win of the season, trailing only Juuse Saros and Andrei Vasilevskiy (both w/ 35) for the most among all goaltenders.#NHLStats: https://t.co/55geAWNwnS pic.twitter.com/xAQj0bFi2u— NHL Public Relations (@PR_NHL) April 11, 2022
- Some sad news in the world of the Carolina Hurricanes.
Sad to hear about the passing of our friend Nathan Catling, whose Sault Ste. Marie family came into our lives through the great Josef Vasicek. Grateful to have been a witness to his amazing life. pic.twitter.com/jnXdLuMj7w— Mike Sundheim (@MikeSundheim) April 9, 2022
