RALEIGH, N - Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has signed defenseman Jalen Chatfield to a one-year, two-way contract. The deal will pay Chatfield $750,000 at the NHL level and $225,000 at the American Hockey League (AHL) level.
Miami’s recruiting efforts have paid off in a big way this July after securing multiple commitments throughout the month. On Friday, the Hurricanes landed one of their top targets regardless of position when Alabaster (Ala.) Thompson Top247 cornerback Trequon Fegans announced his commitment to Miami while in South Florida with multiple family members at Blackmarket Miami Sports Bar in Downtown.
The Hurricanes have made a few changes to their blue line already this season, one of which was signing veteran defenseman Ian Cole Wednesday to a one-year contract worth $2.9 million. Cole has played 595 NHL games for the Blues, Penguins, Blue Jackets, Avalanche and Wild, and won Stanley Cups...
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.
The Hurricanes made their first major addition to the blue line via trade on Wednesday, sending the RFA rights to Warren Foegele to Edmonton for young defenseman Ethan Bear. Bear spoke to the media via Zoom Friday about joining the Hurricanes, here’s a full breakdown of everything he had to say:
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.

Raleigh, NC -- There are plenty of new faces on the Carolina Hurricanes, even if they're not physically in North Carolina just yet. On Thursday, the Canes held a virtual press conference to introduce two of the newcomers to the media: Frederik Andersen and Antti Raanta.

It's been a busy three weeks for the New Jersey Devils, punctuated by one of the biggest signings in franchise history in star defenseman Dougie Hamilton, signed on the opening day of free agency Wednesday. The Devils also traded for defenseman Ryan Graves and signed goalie Jonathan Bernier on Wednesday....
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.
There are snapshots, brief moments during a training camp practice, that offer glimpses of the tantalizing skill sets of these two Dolphins first-round rookies, who both were named after NBA player Jalen Rose, albeit with different spellings. For Jaylen Waddle, Thursday’s highlights were how he contorted his body to rise...

Raleigh, NC -- So what just happened to the Carolina Hurricanes?. The Carolina Hurricanes swapped out nearly a third of their NHL roster in what can only be described as a frenzied start to free agency.
The Hurricanes signed two new goaltenders Wednesday on the opening of free agency. One of them, Frederik Andersen (two years, $4.5 million AAV), is getting a return of sorts. He was taken by the Hurricanes in the seventh round of the 2010 draft, but ultimately didn’t sign with the team before re-entering the draft in 2012 and being picked by the Anaheim Ducks before eventually moving on to the Toronto Maple Leafs.
RALEIGH, NC - Goaltender Frederik Andersen met with the media on Thursday to discuss his decision to join the Carolina Hurricanes, the team that orignally drafted him in 2010. Andersen, 31, has since registered a 226-100-48 record in 393 career NHL games with Anaheim and Toronto. The veteran netminder cited culture and opportunity as the deciding factor in joining the team.
RALEIGH, NC - Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Brendan Smith on a one-year, $800,000 contract. "Brendan is a veteran defenseman who will add physicality and toughness to our lineup," said Waddell.
