Jordan Martinook – what can I say about our new alternate captain? He is charismatic. He is a leader in the room. He will lead us all to a Marty Party, and use that ambition to a deep run in the playoffs. One of the reasons why he would be in the Slytherin house at Hogwarts.
Warren Foegele – during training camp last season, Foegele gave Rod Brind’Amour no choice but to keep him on the Carolina Hurricanes roster. He played with determination to be part of the team. He also became public enemy number one to all Capitals fans!
Julien Gauthier – like Foegele last season, Gauthier is making Brind’Amour’s decision to trim the roster difficult. Whatever he learned last season during the Charlotte Checkers Calder Cup run and win must have stuck with him. He wants to use his talents with the Carolina Hurricanes, not the Checkers, and it has shown this preseason.
Nino Niederreiter – had something to prove after being traded from Minnesota last season. The Wild was not the proper fit for his talents. His production made most Carolina fans want to send their condolences to them as he scored 30 points in 36 regular season games with the Carolina Hurricanes.
New additions for the team, Joel Edmundson is my pick to be in Slytherin for the Hurricanes this season. Edmundson is a big, shutdown style defenseman who isn’t afraid to throw his body around when he needs to. Now, moving on to the Hufflepuffs.
