The Carolina Hurricanes' new-look locker room is coming together with three weeks left on the calendar prior to the start of training camp.

The previous walk-through detailed the open concept in a space that was very much a work-in-progress. Construction continues, but the room as a whole is now more defined.

Let's take another tour of the locker room.

The coaches will now be located at the north end of the locker room, space previously occupied by the players' lounge and storage. In the video above, the coaches' office is the first room seen on the right, with their (future) bathroom positioned adjacent.

Flying past the players' stalls, the locker room begins to feel much larger, as a number of walls were removed to introduce the open concept space. A new players' lounge, complete with a kitchen featuring color-changing LED lights, occupies the far south side of the room alongside the expanded footprint of the team's training area. The functionality of the two spaces is divided by a three-quarter wall that extends a few feet out from the back wall.

The finish line of this project is near, so stay tuned for further updates over the next three weeks.
