Carolina Hurricanes: Caniac Itinerary For Return to Play

The Carolina Hurricanes are preparing the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs

Here is a complete guide for every Caniac as the Carolina Hurricanes return for the finish of the 2019-2020 season.

It has been 128 long days since the Carolina Hurricanes have been in action, 128 long lonely days. But after all of the waiting; hockey is back!

The NHL and the Carolina Hurricanes have entered a phase 3 training camp in preparation for a run at Lord Stanley’s Cup. While the Canes are on day 5 of training there are plenty of important dates coming up for all you Caniacs.

Before we start talking about game one, the matchup, and the exhibition game everyone asked for, let’s break down some immediate updates from the team.

July 14, 2020

Martin Necas returned to the line-up. Why he was missing, we may never know, but with him, the Carolina Hurricanes have a full roster and zero active COVID-19 cases.

This is the full active roster released by the Hurricanes for the playoff run. This might be the deepest, most NHL ready depth chart up in Canada come August.

The Hurricanes will be in this Phase 3 training camp for two weeks before departing to Toronto. So for the time being, stay active on social media to get all of the latest updates from us and the Canes as the boys continue to train.

July 26th, 2020

The teams will all travel to their respective hub cities. This day it will all become real. Training camps will have ended and rosters will be final.

This day is the perfect day to find the jerseys you put away and dust them off. Stock up on storm brew and whatever else you

have as a superstition for Canes playoff games. We need everyone all in on this.

The last weekend without hockey will have come and gone and on this day there will be only two more nights until televised Canes hockey!

July 29th, 2020

Exhibition games for the NHL start on July 28th but the Canes get the match up everyone asked for in the capitals. While this game is a warm-up and does not count for the playoffs, it will be the first televised Canes game in a long time.

It will be aired on NBC and Fox Sports South at 8 pm. No reason to call out sick to work, but it will be hard to contain the excitement all day.

August 1st, 2020

At 12 pm eastern time, the Canes will kick off the 2020 Stanley Cup Playoffs. There will also be 4 games following, so hockey will be on tv all day Saturday. From there the Canes will play at least at noon eastern Monday, August 3rd, and 8 pm Tuesday, August 4th.

So Caiancs, do your part; wear your mask, stay 6 feet away, and wash your hands often. While this is an amazing solution in the circumstances provided, let’s do our part to have fans in the stands next season.
