What the Hurricanes needed

For all the justifiable worries about Carolina’s goaltending, the Hurricanes struggled to score goals in 2017-18.

It’s unclear where exactly Svechnikov Cheap College Jerseys will fit into the lineup next season, but he’ll probably provide an upgrade right away. Barring surprises, the Russian winger should slide in somewhere in the team’s top three forward lines.

If the pieces fall the right way, it could be quite the debut season for the sturdy scorer.

That team’s on the way up, Svechnikov said. It just suits me.

The NHL is a fast game now and you’ve got have D that are able to get the pucks up to the forwards and let them do their thing, said Dobson. I think it says a lot. Obviously there’s a lot of great defensemen in this draft. The game’s becoming a fast game so you’ve got to be able to move the puck quick and get the puck up ice.

I do believe that I’m going to be able to be out there and be playing at a high level, Mewhort said, via the team’s website. I’m getting stronger every day. I’m feeling better every day. I’ve been moving around on the field, and I’m feeling good. At this point in my career, obviously I’m dinged up, and like you guys said, I’ve had to deal with some stuff. But for all that being said, I feel pretty darn good, and like I said, having the Colts show faith like this is making me feel even better.

Mewhort also has experience at tackle, so he could find his way into the mix on the right side after spending OTAs playing Cheap Goalie Jerseys guard on the second unit of a deeper Colts offensive line. Depth is not something Indianapolis has enjoyed up front in recent seasons and the hope is that it will translate to better play whether Mewhort makes it to that high level or not.
