In the course of four hours Saturday, the Carolina Hurricanes traded for goalie Eddie Lack, traded away goalie Anton Khudobin, acquired defenseman James Wisniewski and managed to make eight picks in the NHL draft.
The Carolina Hurricanes have the fifth overall pick in the 2015 NHL draft and general manger Ron Francis said nothing has been done to change the Canes’ position. But things could change before Friday night, when the draft begins in Sunrise, Fla.
The Carolina Hurricanes’ first two opponents for the 2015-2016 season have been set: on the road Oct. 8 against the Nashville Predators, then the home opener two days later against the Detroit Red Wings. But who’ll be in the Canes’ lineup?
Ron Francis made few personnel changes during his first year as the Carolina Hurricanes general manager. But after the Canes missed the playoffs for the sixth straight season, he may be more open to making bigger moves.
