Player Milestones to Watch in the Upcoming Season

Reachable achievements, the longer shots and everything in between

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / Hurricanes.com

The 2019-20 regular season was unexpectedly cut short by the COVID-19 pandemic, as the Carolina Hurricanes played 68 games in their 82-game schedule. As the world continues to cope with the ongoing health crisis, the Canes will play even fewer games in the 2020-21 regular season.

But even with just a 56-game slate on tap, there are a number of player milestones within reach. Some could happen as early as Jan. 14 when the Canes drop the puck on the regular season in Detroit. Some might take a little longer. Some could require more herculean efforts.

From reachable achievements to the ones that are perhaps more of a stretch to everything in between, here are milestones to watch for the Canes this season.

Many stick taps to Mike "Three Piece" Brown "Brownie" of CanesPR for his superior stats tracking.
