Jordan Staal was pretty candid when I spoke with him Friday September 9 at the Carolina Hurricanes’ media availability with the players. When I wrote A “C” for Staal back in July, I felt that it was obvious that he should be the next captain of the ‘Canes. After chatting with him a few days ago, I am even more convinced.

2016-17 Season Preview: Carolina Hurricanes

Just like the Devils who I wrote about yesterday, the Carolina Hurricanes overachieved quite a bit reaching 86 points. Young defensemen really stepped up giving the Canes one of the best young bluelines in the league.
