Hurricanes finally got the goalie they wanted — 11 years later

When the Carolina Hurricanes drafted goalie Frederik Andersen in 2010, it was a long shot. Call it a final-round flier. Andersen, playing for Denmark’s national team, had caught Canes scouts ‘ eyes in the 2010 IIHF World Championship, especially in beating Finland. He was 20 years old, big in net at 6-foot-4 and 220 pounds, and with good mobility and instincts.

Welcome to the U, Trequon Fegans

LB GMiami got a massive recruiting win today when Alabaster (AL) Thompson 4-star CB Trequon Fegans committed to the Hurricanes!. A 6’2” 180lb corner, Fegans is the kind of talent that Miami has been unable to get on the roster over the course of many years. His combination of height, speed, and skill brings a new dimension to the Canes’ CB room, one that has been missing since LaDarius Gunter — the last CB over 6’1” — patrolled the secondary for Miami in 2015.

The Devils also traded for defenseman Ryan Graves and signed goalie Jonathan Bernier on Wednesday....

The Hurricanes Took A Turn For The Worse Real Fast

OK, Carolinas, so I’ve got bad news and some more bad news. The bad news is that on Wednesday the Hurricanes lost out in their bid to resign their best defenseman, Dougie Hamilton. The other bad news is that one of the guys they picked up to replace him, Tony DeAngelo, has repeatedly shown himself to be a real piece-of-crap teammate at all levels of hockey. Oh yeah, and I don’t really know what they’re thinking when it comes to their goaltending, either.
