EDMONTON - Ringette.

I had heard of it, but I had no idea what it actually was until the Carolina Hurricanes began their Monday practice in Edmonton with a rendition of the sport. I tried to identify it as best I could, but the video illustrates it best.

Skinner Set for 500th NHL Game

Canes winger reflects on first 499 games

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes /

WINNIPEG - At 25 years old, Jeff Skinner is a skosh over the average age of the Carolina Hurricanes' roster.

Does that make him one of the "older guys"? Probably not. Again, he's just 25 years and nearly 5 months old.

But Skinner is somewhat of a veteran in the sense that, in his eighth NHL season, he is set to play in his 500th career game on Saturday night in Winnipeg.

Canes Will Settle Into Rhythm on Road

Carolina begins four-game road trip in Winnipeg

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes /

WINNIPEG - After opening the 2017-18 regular season with two consecutive home games, it's time once again for the Carolina Hurricanes to jet set for their annual October road trip.

Over this stretch of nine days, the Canes will log over 4,500 miles in the air as they visit four cities in two countries. The road swing begins in Winnipeg before proceeding through Alberta and concluding in Dallas. Compared to recent years, it's not the most strenuous State Fair road trip, not by any means, and it allows a team that's played just two games in the first 10 days of the season to settle in to a rhythm.

"It's a good trip in the fact that we play four good teams," head coach Bill Peters said after practice on Thursday. "We get a little bit of time in between [games] and the travel is not atrocious, so there's going to be no excuses."
