Dougie Hamilton got home from a workout Reuben Foster Jersey , turned on the TV to watch the NHL draft and saw his name on the screen as part of a trade to the Carolina Hurricanes.

”That’s where I found out,” Hamilton said.

He might want to stay tuned because the Hurricanes are just getting started.

Carolina acquired Hamilton, winger Micheal Ferland and forward prospect Adam Fox from the Calgary Flames on Saturday for center Elias Lindholm and defenseman Noah Hanifin in the latest move during a time of drastic turnover. The Hurricanes, who have missed the playoffs each of the past nine seasons, have gotten a new owner, general manager and coach so far this year and will have a very different team on the ice.

”When you’ve gone as long as we have without making the playoffs the message is we want to be better, we want to compete and we want to win,” GM Don Waddell said. ”We have a lot of other possibilities, pieces to move around. We wanted to acquire the best players we could and let the rest shake out as we move forward.”

Waddell started shaking up the roster by shipping out two pending restricted free agents in Lindholm and Hanifin and added a right-shot defender in Hamilton who could make co-captain Justin Faulk expendable. The Hurricanes should trade for a goaltender and could move Faulk and winger Jeff Skinner soon.

”We’ll stay busy,” Waddell said. ”I can’t say for sure anything will get done. I’m pretty confident something will get done Michael Gallup Cowboys Jersey , whether it’s in the next few days or next 10 days.”

The 25-year-old Hamilton now has been traded at the draft twice after going from the Boston Bruins to the Flames three years ago. Waddell said there were ”no red flags” about Hamilton because of that and was thrilled to pick up an offensive-minded blue liner who has 220 points in 423 regular-season games.

Hamilton figures being traded is easier this time.

”It’s definitely a learning experience, something that helps you grow,” Hamilton said on a conference call. ”You have to go through different experiences and stuff and I think you get growth from that.”

The Hurricanes have gone through some growing pains over the past few months. Tom Dundon bought the team from Peter Karmanos Jr. removed Ron Francis as general manager and replaced him with Waddell and promoted assistant Rod Brind’Amour to head coach.

This trade changes Brind’Amour’s mix as Carolina looks to end the league’s longest playoff drought. Ferland gives the Hurricanes a big winger who can produce after putting up a career-high 41 points last season with Calgary.

”We talked all along that we feel like we’ve got a lot of skill pieces up front and we need a little size and muscle up front, so Ferland, who scored 20 or 21 goals last year, fit that bill pretty well for us,” Waddell said.

Giving up the 21-year-old Hanifin and 23-year-old Lindholm was a heavy price to pay for the Hurricanes. Hanifin was the fifth overall pick in 2015 and joins an already deep blue line that includes Mark Giordano and T.J. Brodie.

Hanifin and Lindholm are reunited in Calgary with coach Bill Peters, who stepped down from the Hurricanes at the end of the season amid uncertainty within the front office.

”Obviously Bill spoke very highly of both players and really likes both players,” Flames GM Brad Treliving said. ”Both guys are great character. He liked both players. It was a great resource to have.”



This story has been corrected to show that Micheal Ferland had 41, not 78 Connor Williams Youth Jersey , points last season.



Looking to extend one franchise mark and set another, the Toronto Maple Leafs entered Monday 25 spots ahead of the Buffalo Sabres in the NHL standings.

That didn’t matter to Jack Eichel.

The Sabres star scored his second goal of the game midway through the third period to lift last-place Buffalo over the Maple Leafs 3-2 and end Toronto’s club-record home winning streak at 13 games.

Casey Nelson had the other goal for Buffalo, which got 39 saves from Chad Johnson to end a four-game slide. Zemgus Girgensons added two assists.

”He’s a pro,” Sabres coach Phil Housley said of Johnson, who improved to 7-1-1 career against Toronto. ”He got an opportunity on short notice and did a terrific job.

Patrick Marleau had a goal and an assist, and Nazem Kadri scored for Toronto. Frederik Andersen made 24 stops for the Leafs, who were also looking to set a franchise mark for victories in a season with 46.

”We had lots of good things, but then we got carried away with it and gave up some chances,” Toronto coach Mike Babcock said. ”The bottom line is we did lots of good things, we didn’t win the game.”

Eichel got his tiebreaker at 9:36 of the third when he swept down the left side Joe Namath Jersey , fought of Nikita Zaitsev and slipped a backhand through Andersen’s pads for his 24th.

”Jack’s game all night was terrific,” Housley said. ”From start to finish, he really brought it.”

After the Leafs turned a 1-0 deficit into a 2-1 lead late in the second, the Sabres tied it at 7:56 of the third when Nelson scored on a shot from the point through traffic that went off defenseman Roman Polak.

The Leafs challenged for goalie interference, but the call on the ice withstood a video review.

Nelson’s third goal of the season came after Toronto had a couple of chances to stretch its lead to 3-1 earlier in the period.

The Leafs pressed to keep their streak going, with James van Riemsdyk seeing his shot stopped by Johnson with less than seven minutes to go.

The Leafs pushed late with an extra attacker, but the Sabres held on to hand Toronto its first loss on home ice since Jan. 22.

”They were pretty persistent,” Kadri said. ”To be honest with you, we played a pretty all-around game and had a lot of offensive opportunities. Their goaltender was good tonight. They’re a resilient group.”

Down 1-0 after the visitors grabbed an early lead, the Leafs had a number of chances to get even before Kadri finally broke through with 2:29 remaining in the second.

Marleau dislodged the puck from Buffalo defenseman Marco Scandella behind the net on the forecheck before Mitch Marner fed a quick pass in front to Kadri http://www.newyorkgiantsteamonline.com/saquon-barkley-jersey , who beat Johnson to give him back-to-back 30-goal seasons.

Kadri, who scored 32 times in 2016-17, has eight goals in the last six games at Air Canada Centre.

The Sabres were assessed a high-sticking penalty on the ensuing faceoff – the game’s first infraction of any kind – and Marleau banged home a loose puck in the crease on the power play at 18:42 after Auston Matthews took the initial shot.

The Sabres grabbed the lead at 3:23 of the first. Eichel pressured Matthews into a turnover in the corner in the Toronto zone before taking a feed from Girgensons and beating Andersen with a quick move to the forehand.

NOTES: The Leafs won 45 games in 1998-99, 1999-00 and 2003-04, and secured 44 victories in both 1992-93 and 2002-03 – seasons that all came before the NHL instituted the shootout to break ties in 2005. Toronto is 7-2 in shootouts in 2017-18.
