The Carolina Hurricanes are on a tear this season. With one of hockey’s most complete teams, four players stand-out as having stepped up their game this season.
This year has been one for the books thus far. Caniacs have witnessed this team take on some of the best teams in the NHL and hold their own. With a roster made up of talent at almost every position, some true standouts have made their presence known.
Second place in an always competitive Metropolitan Division, the Carolina Hurricanes are a difficult matchup for anyone. The team has bought into their system and have accepted their roles with confidence reserved for true winners.
Seventh in total points, boasting 48 goals for and 38 goals against, the Hurricanes are a top ten team in terms of their ability to play as a unit. With three players in the top 50 of points, goals, and assists, the Hurricanes also maintain exceptional individual talent.
There is plenty of credit to go around. The coaching staff has been great, management has given them every opportunity to succeed, and the players have all exceeded expectations. For this team to have experienced this level of success takes chemistry, focus, and talent; qualities in abundance for this group.
Every player on this roster has done their job well, but it is four players who stand out for their contribution in the face of a bigger role. These players have shown that they have more to their game than some of us may have thought.
