Carolina Hurricanes Place Dylan Coghlan on Waivers

Hurricanes Coghlan

The Carolina Hurricanes wrapped up their preseason schedule on Friday night with a 4-1 win over the Nashville Predators. They will drop the puck to start their regular season on Wednesday against the Ottawa Senators. Today, they placed Dylan Coghlan on waivers, which was unsurprising due to their depth on the blue line with all the off-season acquisitions they made in adding Tony DeAngelo and Dmitry Orlov in free agency. It will be interesting to see what Carolina does with Coghlan if he clears, as they currently don’t have an AHL affiliate; he will most likely be a healthy scratch for the Hurricanes to start the season as he provides depth on the blue line.

Dylan Coghlan By The Numbers

The Vegas Golden Knights signed him as an undrafted free agent after attending the team’s inaugural development and NHL training camp in 2017. He was traded to the Carolina Hurricanes in the trade that sent Max Pacioretty to the Golden Knights. In his career, he has played in 105 games, recording 22 points coming on six goals and 16 assists. Last season with the Hurricanes, he played in only 17 games and recorded just three points, all coming on assists, and he had two penalty minutes. His best season in his short three-year career came in 2021-22 when he played in 59 games, recording 13 points on three goals and ten assists, all of which were a career-high for him; he also recorded four power-play points on two goals and two assists.

That certainly wasn’t a polite Game 2. I think every neutral fan should agree that officiating was questionable on both ends of the ice in Game 2, and I’m being nice when I word it that way. Leon Draisaitl throws a hit on Aleksandar Barkov that actually resulted in a cross-check to the face. Barkov […]
