With the Carolina Hurricanes season well underway, I thought I would take a look at the first 3 rounds of the draft and how the Canes fared.

The 2014 NHL draft for the Carolina Hurricanes saw the organization take 7 players. The Canes were coming off a lackluster 36-35-11 season and missed the playoffs yet again. With the roster devoid of talent the Canes were looking to strike gold and help what was then a struggling roster.

The 2014 draft contained players such as Aaron Ekblad, Sam Reinhart, Sam Bennett and Leon Draisaitl just in the top 5. Unfortunately for the Canes, they didn’t have a top 5 pick which likely could have helped accelerate the rebuilding process. However, the Canes went on to have a really solid draft that has put multiple players on the NHL roster.

With that being said, let’s take a look back at who the Canes drafted and how they have performed so far.
