And we're back!
It's been far too long. (Has it really been almost four months? Yes, apparently it has.) Welcome back to Tweetmail, (usually) a weekly feature on Hurricanes.com in which I take your Twitter questions about the Carolina Hurricanes or other assorted topics and answer them in mailbag form. Hopefully the final product is insightful to some degree, and maybe we have some fun along the way.
But wait. There's more! This isn't your typical Tweetmail, either. Answering your Twitter questions this week is Hurricanes forward Ryan Dzingel, who last week made his first visit to his new home in Raleigh.
Take it away, Ryan.
Probably just making this place my home. I haven't really had one place where I called home or bought a house and relaxed and enjoyed it, so I'm looking forward to actually making this my home.
I've heard nothing but great things. He's going to let you know where you stand. I like that. You have to keep yourself accountable, but it's good to know what the coaching staff feels about you, too.
There are a lot of guys. Staal is cool. I watched him a lot when I was younger. Aho is pretty special. Our D corps is awesome. A little bit of everyone, to be honest. I'm sure once I get out there, I'll have a better feel for the guys. There are a lot of great players here.
No, I don't know anyone, which is kind of weird, but it's going to be cool.
I don't know. Duck, duck, goose was pretty funny.

I always played forward. Scoring goals is definitely the most fun, so I try to do that as much as I can.
I don't even know. I haven't even looked what I'm at. It's probably pretty low. Bump me up a couple of spots. We'll see after this year.
My family enjoys it a lot. Is that a Raleigh thing?
I'm not a huge pineapple guy.
Do you have a go-to pizza topping then?
Deep dish with sausage in Chicago is pretty bomb.
I have a great country voice. I like a ton of country, like Luke Combs.
The last two years we've had a hockey camp for kids 18 and under. We had a lot of inner-city kids who came. We paid for all of them to come and all their gear and stuff, so that was pretty cool. We raised a lot of money for that. I actually want to do a golf tournament. I was going to do one this summer, but getting traded and then trying to find out where I was going, I'm definitely going to do a golf tournament here.
That's a tough one. Tongue out one, I guess, I don't know. 😛
No, but I eat chicken parm the night before every game, pretty much.
That was fun, no? Join me (not Dzingel) next week (promise!) for more questions and more answers!
If you have questions you'd like answered or you have some additional quiries for Dzingel we can answer in the coming months, you can find me on Twitter at @MSmithCanes, or you can drop me an email.
