Does anyone else think of Labor Day as the “holiday before hockey?” That is what I termed years ago since the start of training always sits roughly a week behind Labor Day weekend.
We are getting close to finally having more real news once training camp starts, but this week is still a bit quiet on the news front.
Carolina Hurricanes prospects
Dave McCarthy from NHL.com checks in on Jake Bean and his goals entering training camp.
If have not kept up, Canes and Coffee’s ‘Back to School’ series on Hurricanes prospects below the AHL level finished up the 2017 draft class and started on the 2016 draftees. You can find a clickable menu of all of those articles HERE.
Carolina Hurricanes veterans
Josh Beneteau from Sportsnet in Canada writes about Cam Ward’s likely reduced role behind Scott Darling.
Other Hurricanes news
Andrew Schnittker from the Technician has five numbers that need to change for the Hurricanes to make the playoffs.
The tentative plan is to kick off Hurricanes training camp preview coverage a bit early. The Hurricanes faithful have endured another long offseason, so I figure everyone is chomping at the bit to get started with the 2017-18 season in whatever way possible.
