Carolina's power play has gone 1-for-26 in the last 10 games.
That includes a run of 0-14 in the past five contests. "It's costing us in some situations where we need a bit of a jump, where we could use one from the PP but we're not getting it," said Skinner, who had the last marker on the man advantage against Anaheim on Oct. 29. Nov 12 - 1:22 PM

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr.'s negotiations with a group led by Chuck Greenberg to buy the Carolina Hurricanes has reported become more complicated.

It's not clear how they've become more complicated, but it sounds like the negotiations might not be processing as quickly as Karmanos would like. That said, the same source that said the negotiations had gotten more complicated also specified that the groups have "not turned their backs on each other," so perhaps there will be an agreement eventually. Karmanos is reportedly seeking $450 million to $500 million for the team.

The Carolina Hurricanes had a crowd of just 7,892 people on Tuesday for their second home game of the campaign.

The Hurricanes have been last in attendance for the previous two campaigns with an average of just 11,776 last season. Hurricanes president Don Waddell offered a different perspective. "We’re not last in the league in attendance," Waddell said. "You guys can publish (attendance) reports, but I go by dollars. So we’re not last. Nobody is happy where we are, no doubt. We also have to continue to keep moving all the elements forward. If we can do that, I think attendance is going to pick up with that." They've reduced the number of complimentary or discounted tickets they've been providing in an effort to sell more season tickets, making it possible for attendance to go down even as the number of full-price tickets sold goes up. Waddell said that the Hurricanes' season ticket base has grown from 5,400 in July 2014 to roughly 7,000 now. Still, however you break it down the Hurricanes have a lot of room for improvement when it comes to their attendance.

The Carolina Hurricanes will have a team captain for the 2017-18 campaign.

Hurricanes coach Bill Peters will name the next captain at the end of training camp. Carolina went through the 2016-17 campaign without a captain, but they had four assistants in Jordan Staal, Jeff Skinner and Victor Rask, and Justin Faulk. "It will be a group decision," Peters said in regards to who will get the 'C'. "I think it’s important to get everybody’s ideas. When you ask people, not only do I ask them but I also ask them why? Give me an example of why you picked that guy. Give me another one. Give me an example of how he showed leadership."

The Carolina Hurricanes have confirmed that an offer has been made to purchase the franchise.

Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. is evaluating the offer and weighing his options, one of which is to simply retain ownership of the team. As previously reported, it's believed that former Texas Rangers CEO Chuck Greenberg is the one who made a bid to buy the Hurricanes and that offer is reportedly in the $500 million range. If the team is sold, it will remain in Raleigh.

Chuck Greenberg is reportedly closing in on a deal in the $500 million range to purchase the Carolina Hurricanes.

Greenberg is the founder of Greenberg Sports Group and the former CEO of the Texas Rangers. The Hurricanes would stay in Carolina with this purchase. While Hurricanes owner Peter Karmanos Jr. has been reportedly looking to sell the team for years, it has been stated in the past that the Hurricanes wouldn't relocate.

The Carolina Hurricanes have hired Mike Bales to be their new goalie coach.

He'll get to work with newly acquired goaltender Scott Darling. Bales joins the Hurricanes after spending the last four years as the goalie coach of the Pittsburgh Penguins. "Mike has a proven history of success as a goaltending coach with the Penguins, winning back-to-back Stanley Cups," said 'Canes GM Ron Francis. "Based on our research, we are confident that he is someone our goalies and coaching staff will enjoy working with, and we're thrilled to have him in our organization."

The Carolina Hurricanes have selected Mike Vellucci to serve as the head coach of their AHL affiliates, the Charlotte Checkers.

Vellucci was already serving as an assistant general manager with the Hurricanes and he will retain that post despite gaining a second job. "Mike has more than 20 years of coaching experience, including more than 800 games as a head coach in the Ontario League," Hurricanes GM Ron Francis said a statement. "He is excited to get back behind the bench and we appreciate his willingness to take on this additional responsibility." Before joining Carolina, Vellucci spent 14 seasons with OHL Plymouth where he spent much of his tenure as the team's general manager and head coach.

The Carolina Hurricanes will participate in seven preseason games with the first being on Sept. 18.

Interestingly, Carolina only booked two home games for its exhibition season with those contests being against Tampa Bay on Sept. 20 and Washington on Sept. 29. It will face Edmonton for a contest in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan on Sept. 27.

Carolina has 11 picks in the 2017 NHL Entry Draft.

That includes seven selections in the first three rounds. The Hurricanes only have a 3.2 percent chance of winning the first overall pick.
Apr 15 - 8:32 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes' point streak ended at 13 consecutive games.

That was a franchise record and the Hurricanes went 9-0-4 over that span. However, Carolina was so far out of the playoffs when that run started, that it wasn't enough to save the season. With a 3-0 loss to Dallas on Saturday, the Hurricanes' playoff hopes are all-but officially dead despite the 13 games that preceded it.
Apr 2 - 9:38 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes have set a franchise record by recording at least a point in 13 straight games.

Carolina earned a 2-1 overtime victory on Thursday, bringing the run up to 9-0-4. Before the Hurricanes started this run they were assumed to be out of the hunt for a playoff spot, but now they have a shot at advancing. They still have an uphill battle ahead of them though as they remain four points behind the Boston Bruins in the Wild Card race. Carolina will try to keep this run going on Saturday against Dallas.
Mar 31 - 8:31 AM

The Carolina Hurricanes still have an outside shot of making the playoffs.

It didn't seem possible not that long ago, but the Hurricanes have gone on a 8-0-4 run to push themselves into the picture. Even with that run they still have an uphill battle ahead of them as Carolina remains four points back in the Wild Card race with seven games left in their schedule. Still, if they can find a way to keep their current hot streak going, then anything's possible. They'll face the Columbus Blue Jackets on Thursday.
Mar 30 - 7:49 AM

Simply put, Peter Karmanos is open to selling the Carolina Hurricanes.

He's been on the hunt for a minority buyer the last few years, but appears open to the idea of moving on from the franchise entirely "depending on the offer." Which unfortunately is not specific enough to draw conclusions from, but may, hopefully, still hint at his desire to keep the Hurricanes in Carolina. Time will tell. Stay tuned.
Jan 28 - 3:17 PM

The Carolina Hurricanes are 14-1-1 in their last 16 games at home.

We guess they sure like that home cooking as teams do not look forward to playing the Canes in Raleigh. "Everybody is having fun right now," Carolina forward Brock McGinn said. "We’re in the hunt for the playoffs and these are big games, big points every time you step on the ice. The home fans can definitely motivate you that much more."
