If you missed it yesterday, the Hurricanes annual media day on Tuesday yielded a declaration by Coach Bill Peters that the team would name a captain for the 2017-18 season. I wrote about the situation in yesterday’s Daily Cup of Joe, but the article is also a mini-Coffee Shop of sorts with two polls on the captain situation and also a bit of debate.

On the topic of Traverse City and Hurricanes prospects, check out also the latest ‘Back to School’ article featuring Matt Filipe and today’s Daily Cup of Joe which part 1 of 2 previewing the Traverse City tourney.

Per reader request in the Monday Coffee Shop, today’s Coffee Shop is dedicated to the Traverse City tourney which faces off at 7:30pm on Friday night for the future Hurricanes.
