Fleury Finds Redemption in Anaheim

In his 96th NHL game, Fleury scored his first career NHL goal

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

Until Friday night, Haydn Fleury didn't have a fond memory of Honda Center in Anaheim.

Flip the calendar back a couple of years to December of 2017. It was the 27th game of Fleury's rookie season in the NHL, the third stop on a cross-country, six-game road trip for the Carolina Hurricanes.

In the final minute of the second period, Andrew Cogliano smacked the puck out of his own end. Fleury fetched the clearing attempt in the neutral zone, but the puck was bouncing on choppy ice. Fleury tried to settle the puck and spin to his right back up the ice, but the puck just dribbled away.

"Panic," Fleury recalled.

Q&A with Eric Tulsky, Canes VP of Hockey Management & Strategy

Tulsky leads growing data department

by Michael Smith @MSmithCanes / CarolinaHurricanes.com

SAN JOSE - It was early February 2015, just after Super Bowl weekend. The Carolina Hurricanes were on a four-game road trip that included three games out west.

While in San Jose on the final stop of the trip, traveling members of the Canes' front office met with Eric Tulsky, who was then working part-time with the organization.

Tulsky was at the forefront of a burgeoning analytics movement in hockey, and that August, the Canes hired Tulsky in a full-time position as a hockey analyst.

In the four years since, Tulsky has risen to the role of Vice President of Hockey Management and Strategy, leading an ever-growing data department.
