Hurricanes May Trade DeAngelo



Recently, during Hockey Night in Canada, Elliotte Friedman reported that Hurricanes GM Don Waddell has been exploring the possibility of trading Tony DeAngelo.


"There is word Carolina is looking to move a defenceman. The name hearing a lot out there is Tony DeAngelo, but there are other things that the Carolina Hurricanes will potentially consider."


Tony DeAngelo played 70 games for the Flyers last season before rejoining the Carolina Hurricanes on a one-year deal, having previously played for the team in 2021.

This season, he has five points, all assists, in 12 games.

Contract Negotiations Stalled for Pesce

There is speculation that Brett Pesce might be a potential trade candidate due to ongoing contract discussions that have hit a roadblock between the veteran defenseman and the Hurricanes. Pesce, who is in the final year of a six-year contract, has played five games this season, tallying a goal and an assist. Unfortunately, he has been sidelined by a lower-body injury since then.
