James Wisniewski is already familiar with some key personnel within the Carolina Hurricanes' organization.
Wisniewski previously played for head coach Bill Peters back when they were both with the AHL Rockford IceHogs in 2008-09. He also has known Hurricanes director of hockey operations Mike Vellucci for a long time. "He was my first coach in junior hockey and he coached me for three years in Plymouth," Wisniewski said. "We've stayed in touch, played golf together. He knows me as a player but also as a person. Coming to Carolina should be a good fit for for me." The Hurricanes acquired Wisniewski from Anaheim in exchange for Anton Khudobin. Jul 1 - 8:26 AM
