With a break between rounds of the NHL playoffs and a holiday weekend for remembering heroes, spending time with family and eating too much, Memorial Day weekend is the last pit stop before we push into June and the busy off-season hockey calendar that awaits.
Be sure to check in on mid-week. Once we get our head back above water after the holiday weekend, Canes and Coffee will begin its off-season coverage of the expansion draft, NHL draft and free agency in earnest and be sure to give you a chance to chime in with your opinions in the Coffee Shop.
The Monday Coffee Shop will take on a patriotic theme and take a look back at American born players who wore Carolina Hurricanes’ uniforms over the years.
