Icon23 Changes blow through Carolina

Canes Reboot

While the CPHL playoffs winded down the midnight lamp in Carolina was burning late in the night as the Canes management made the necessary moves to continue to reshape the organization. As Canes GM Hanna Sniper finally turned out the light and called it a season the GM was able to pull off three moves that will kick start this upcoming off season

Holtz Finally A Hurricanes

The first move seen Canes veteran Mats Zuccarello sent to the St Louis Blues for, Roope Hintz and a 3rd round selection in the 2020 draft. Zuccarello just wanted a fit in Carolina, he was brought in for Blake Wheeler but never found the scoring touch that the struggling Canes so desperately needed. In Hintz, the Canes bring in a future core player to play behind Matthew Barzel and add depth to the organization. Hintz was a player our scouts have been circling for a while now and the Canes felt that he would be making a breakout season next year and this was our only opportunity to get him.

Canes Land Robert Thomas

In a second deal the Canes broke the bank and made a deal with the CPHL Stanly Cup Champions New Jersey Devils. The Hurricanes have been stock pilling assets the last couple seasons for this type of move. Leaving the Hurricanes are rearguard Kris Letang, Kiefer Bellows, Alexi Lipanov, Wade Allison, Dillon Dube and Ryan MacLeod. In return the Canes acquire right to ECHLer Robert Thomas and Alexander Ovechkin. The deal breaks down in the Canes acquired both Hintz and Robert Thomas as core members for the Canes for years to come. The addition of Ovechkin brings some proven goal scoring if the winger is able to last the offseason still a member of the Hurricanes as it's expected that the Canes will look to move him

The final move came with the Detroit Red Wings as the Canes cleared out some AHL numbers as they moved forward Robert Carpenter and defenceman Joseph Cecconi to Detroit for a 4th round selection in the upcoming draft
