Chad LaRose explained that he skipped his end-of-season exit interview with the Carolina Hurricanes because he "needed a cool-off period."
"Nobody was happy we didn't make the playoffs again," he said. "I took some time, cooled off, and then I went and saw everyone, talked to Jimmy (Rutherford), paid my respects and thanked them for the opportunity with them." LaRose's agent, Mark Guy, is exploring his client's options now that he's an unrestricted free agent. LaRose said that he would still be open to returning to play in Carolina down the road. "Of course, I always wanted to stay in Carolina," he said. "I love all the fans. The organization is top-notch. But sometimes change is good for people, too. I always envisioned playing again in Carolina anyway before my career is up."
