CarolinaHurricanes.com: How's your summer been?

Jaccob Slavin: My summer's been good. It's been really good. My wife and I have been here in Raleigh for most of it.

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

Since the conclusion of the regular season, Jeff Skinner's name had regularly surfaced in trade talk conversations around the league.
