Hockey is almost here. The World Cup teams played exhibition games this past week. The list of Hurricanes players taking part in the informal skates at RCI is growing. Today’s hop around the internet looking for Canes news yields a few great articles for heading into the formal start of training camp.

Hurricanes media day and the transition away from Eric Staal

Friday was media day for the Carolina Hurricanes which makes a number of players available for interviews and a good amount of video footage. Below are a few of the more interesting results:

Brian LeBlanc from Canes Country has some comments from Jordan Staal on the absence of Eric and also short videos of interviews with Justin Faulk, Elias Lindholm and Joakim Nordstrom.


Photos from Hurricanes informal skates

If you cannot fit a visit to RCI into your daytime schedule to see the growing group of Hurricanes players working out, Jamie Kellner’s Hurricanes photo site is the next best thing. It should be busy over the next few weeks with the addition of more fresh pictures.


We are getting really close to REAL on-ice hockey at least in the form of practices, scrimmages and preseason games! Who else is fired up?


Go Canes!
