The Carolina Hurricanes drafted left-winger Jeff Skinner in 2010. He was their first-round pick, 7th overall in that year’s NHL Entry Draft.

The week between Christmas and New Year’s Day is filled with great opportunities for sports fans across the spectrum. College football bowl games, the winding down of the NFL season, featured NBA marquis-matchups and of course “holiday hockey” fill the sport menu.

The Carolina Hurricanes welcomed the Buffalo Sabres along with 14,470 fans into Raleigh’s PNC Arena last Friday night. The fans there got a glimpse at the future of the NHL – it was a good look, and hockey’s future appears to be in excellent hands. Granted, it may be difficult to imagine that hockey’s future

Most recently, he may well have had this exchange: “Honey, I bought the Carolina Hurricanes.” Veruschka: “Why? Aren’t they pretty bad? Won’t that be frustrating?” Tom Dundon, You’re up The truth is that the Hurricanes have been frustrating

The Carolina Hurricanes named co-captains Thursday, Jordan Staal and Justin Faulk. Jeff Skinner was named an alternate. Generally received by most as a positive announcement, it does bring some questioning thoughts that may linger beneath the surface for some. Certainly, it is a positive as compared to the team being without a captain as it
