The Carolina Hurricanes have ten prospects in the NCAA system. How are they playing in college and which players might we see in the NHL or AHL soon?

The Carolina Hurricanes went through a huge debacle last season with Adam Fox and the “will he or wont he” sign with the team debacle with his final year of being both a prospect and a NCAA player coming up. He made it clear that he had no intention with signing with the Hurricanes (either because he didn’t want to play for them or felt that he wouldn’t get a chance with such a deep D-core).

Since then he has been traded to the New York Rangers where he signed and has played for them. The Hurricanes got a pair of draft picks in return and both teams seem to be happy with the results.

Now the Hurricanes can turn their attention to ten more players in the NCAA including another Harvard Player. Six of them have their “must sign by” dates coming up this summer and the Hurricanes will have to make a decision on them very soon. But who deserves a contract and who deserves to be forgotten to the sands of time?

That is what we will break down today as we take a look at the ten NCAA players in the Canes reserve list that may or may not become household names in Raleigh very soon. How long will the Hurricanes have to sign some of these guys and who might get the chance to play in Charlotte as soon as next season?
