About Last Season 2018

Our year in review series from the 2017-18 Carolina Hurricanes' season.

About Last Season: Phil Di Giuseppe

Every team has a player that reliably fills out the roster but doesn’t stand out in any one area, and for the Hurricanes, that player was Di Giuseppe.

About Last Season: Haydn Fleury

The rookie defenseman played solid, relatively dependable hockey in his first NHL season, but faces competition for his roster spot next year.

About Last Season: Lee Stempniak

Injury-plagued the first half of the season, largely ineffective the second, has Stempniak’s time with the Hurricanes come to an end?

About Last Season: Teuvo Teravainen

The young Finn set new career highs, giving the Canes a bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season.

About Last Season: Jordan Staal

It was a difficult personal season for the co-captain, but you’d have never known it by his play on the ice.

About Last Season: Victor Rask

An underperforming disappointment might be the politest way to sum up the Swedish center’s season.

About Last Season: Brock McGinn

Establishing himself at the NHL level, Brock McGinn earned consistent ice time all season.

About Last Season: Scott Darling

In his first season as a starter, Scott Darling fell well short of the expectations placed on him by the Carolina faithful.

About Last Season: Klas Dahlbeck

The extra defensemen was solid in his limited role, earning the praise of his coach.

About Last Season: Lucas Wallmark

Wallmark took a step forward in his development but the future remains uncertain for the RFA center.

About Last Season: Elias Lindholm

The former 5th overall pick seems to have found his level, but it may not be where his draft position suggested it would be.

About Last Season: Trevor van Riemsdyk

Solid but unspectacular, Trevor van Riemsdyk provided some stability on the Canes’ blue line.

About Last Season: Joakim Nordstrom

At one time on pace for 246 goals, Joakim Nordstrom tailed off juuuust a bit after scoring the first goal of the Hurricanes’ season. How do you rate the penalty-killing specialist’s 2017-18 campaign?

About Last Season: Derek Ryan

In another contract year, Derek Ryan improved his numbers again, but is it enough to get him another extension?

About Last Season: Justin Faulk

The Hurricanes co-captain is a veteran presence on the blue line, but has he lived up to expectations?

About Last Season: Jaccob Slavin

The Canes’ defensive stalwart had a solid end to the season, but it wasn’t all smooth sailing.

About Last Night: Fool’s Gold

For a brief moment, it seemed like the Canes figured out how to win again. Then they reminded us that they were never really in the game to begin with.

About Last Season: 2016-17 Final Grades

School’s out, so it’s time to hand out final grades along with a few superlatives.

About Last Season: Ron Francis, Bill Peters, and the Coaching Staff

Ron Francis, Bill Peters, and their respective assistants were hard at work making this team better in 2016-2017, but how will the Canes Country community grade their performances?

About Last Season: Wallmark, Zykov, Poturalski, Tolchinsky Performance Reviews

Wallmark, Zykov, Poturalski, and Tolchinsky all played very few games in the NHL this year, but what do their futures hold in the organization?

About Last Season: Cam Ward Performance Review and Grade

Carolina’s longest-tenured player gave more of the usual sub-par goaltending with the odd “timely save” and a solid December, but was it enough to keep him around for next year?

About Last Season: Teuvo Teravainen Performance Review and Grade

After winning a Stanley Cup in Chicago, Teravainen reached new career highs in his first year in Raleigh. But was it enough?

About Last Season: Matt Tennyson Performance Review and Grade

The free agent acquisition of last summer provided the Hurricanes with depth on the blue line. Will he be donning the Hurricanes red next season?

About Last Season: Lee Stempniak Performance Review and Grade

After being signed as a free agent last summer, Stempniak provided a consistent, veteran presence on a young roster.

About Last Season: Jordan Staal Performance Review and Grade

The Canes top center proved to be the team’s best two-way player in 2016-2017.

About Last Season: Jaccob Slavin Performance Review and Grade

The second-year defenseman continued his breakout in 2016-2017.

About Last Season: Jeff Skinner Performance Review and Grade

The shifty scoring winger had his best season to date in 2016-2017.

About Last Season: Derek Ryan Performance Review and Grade

The Canes center came into his own this season. How did he measure up?

About Last Season: Ryan Murphy Performance Review and Grade

In the first year of a new contract, the Canes defenseman had another tough season.

About Last Season: Noah Hanifin Performance Review and Grade

Carolina’s other 19-year-old completed his second year on the blue line. Did he continue to progress or fall into a sophomore slump?

About Last Season: Joakim Nordstrom Performance Review and Grade

After a breakout 2015-16 campaign, Nordstrom went back down to Earth in a fourth-line role.

About Last Season: Andrej Nestrasil Performance Review and Grade

Largely a forgotten man in 2017, an uncertain future awaits Nestrasil.
