Offseason Report


At the draft, The Hurricanes traded 34 year old center Logan Couture for the 2nd overall pick. They selected LW Byron Wallace, who is NHL ready! (82 OV, 19 years old, 4.5 stars, playmaker and good defensively)

Connor McDavid (93 OV) got signed to a lucrative contract that will pay him 13.865 million per year for 6 years.

C Drew Weaver (25 years old, 4.5 yellow, TWF) will center the 2nd line. He spent last year on the third line.

Prospect LW Radoslav Honzik (PWF, 82 OV, 2017 32nd overall, 3.5 yellow) is ready for the NHL.

To fill the gap at 3C, the Canes signed Tyler Ennis to a 2 year deal.

2017 62nd overall pick Brandon Kaunisto (PWF, RW, 3 yellow stars) is also ready for the NHL.

4th liners Eric Tangradi and Darren Kramer were signed in FA.

The Canes also traded LW Deon Draisail, who they were expected more from, for center prospect Ned Woolley of the LA Kings. (SNP, C, 71 OV, 4 yellow stars.) The Kanes are hoping that he will turn into a Morgan Kilmchuk-type of player.
