The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Calvin de Haan to a four-year, $18.2 million contract extension.

De Haan couldn't play past Dec. 16th last season due to a shoulder injury that required season-ending surgery. The good news is that he expects to be ready for training camp. Prior to the injury, he had a goal and 12 points in 33 contests with the New York Islanders last season. He had 25 points in 2016-17 and is capable of providing similar production next season if he stays healthy. "Calvin is a solid, puck-moving defenseman who will bring a veteran presence to the blue line," said Hurricanes GM Don Waddell. "He is a strong two-way player who is capable of shutting down opponents' top lines, and he will help solidify the left side and upgrade our defense."

He certainly has a lot to prove going into the 2018-19 campaign. He's coming off a rough season where he had a 3.03 GAA and .902 save percentage in 39 games.

Eetu Luostarinen has been very impressive in the Hurricanes' prospects development camp this past week.

The 2017 second-round pick out of Finland has tremendous offensive updside that he displayed by scoring on a behind-the-back, between-the-legs shot in a two-on-two drill this week during the Hurricanes' prospects development camp. If you haven't seen the goal, it's worth a look on YouTube. Luostarinen will not play in the AHL this season, but will instead, return to KalPa of the SM Liga. He might be a factor in 2020, so keep an eye on him.
