Team(s) Interested: Carolina Hurricanes- During Tuesday night’s “Insider Trading” segment on TSN, it was reported that the Hurricanes may be willing to move a defenseman in order to obtain an offensive forward. This comes after it was announced that Jussi Jokinen would be out for almost a month. The Hurricanes have only managed five wins in their first 12 games, and rank 12th in the NHL in goals-for per game, with a 2.67. That’s better then half the league, but they are not getting enough to be a .500 team. One name that has been rumored to be sent packing is Joni Pitkanen. The D-man has tremendous size and strength, and is a big-minute defenseman with all-around ability. No talk about who could come back.

About The Author

Steven took a different route towards his hockey interests. Starting out as a big Habs fan, he started to gravitate towards the more obscure levels of hockey, such as the low level tournaments in Asia, strange club matches between teams most people in North America can’t pronounce, and even some 3am contests between Bulgaria and New Zealand. Aside from his love for strange hockey events, Steven occasionally acts as a mediocre ball hockey goalie following a failed attempt at making it to the NHL as a fourth line house league grinder. Beyond hockey, Steven is an avid racing fan and loves to chat about NASCAR, F1, Indycar, you name it. Oh, and don’t get him started on music. That is, unless you want the whole history of metal and a guitar lesson. Currently, Steven is a credentialed media member with the Mississauga Steelheads of the OHL, as well as with the Oakville Blades of the OJHL. Steven has also hosted the television show "The Hockey House" on TVCogeco in Ontario, as well as a segment under the same with on LeafsTV in Toronto. Home page:
