It’s March 18th, 2022, which means we are only three days away from the biggest event of the regular season: the Trade Deadline.

Commonly asked by most interested in what potential moves the Hurricanes may choose to make is: “How could the Hurricanes pull off a large-scale move with the limited cap-space available?”
Most asking that do have a valid point. But with the news earlier about Jordan Martinook’s injury, there is a chance Carolina may get $1.8M in extra cap space, which provides some relief for the Hurricanes as they look for a depth defenseman.
