RALEIGH, North Carolina. – The Old Farmer’s Almanac states that Summer Dog Days are July 3 through August 11.

With the free agency buzz fading away and training camp a month away, it sure feels like we’re in the middle of that time, doesn’t it?

Garage sale

The highly requested garage sale is back this Saturday August 6th.

Subscribers to the 2022-23 season will have first access from 8:00 a.m., while the general public will be able to stop from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.

Bearsy’s back

In case you missed it, defender Ethan Bear and the organization avoided their arbitration hearing by agreeing to a one-year contract last week.

With the official return of number 25, the Canes now have eight defensemen under contract who played in NHL games last season. After the two presumed best pairs of Slavin-Burns and Skjei-Pesce, the organization also has Bear, Jalen Chatfield, Dylan Coghlan and Guillaume Lagesson. Plus, all signs point to Jake Gardiner being back in the picture at training camp as well. It looks like this will all make for an interesting story next month.

Bear and Carolina agreeing to the terms means that Martin Necas and Max Lajoie are the club’s only two remaining restricted free agents from last year. Lajoie’s arbitration hearing is currently scheduled for next week.

With the bulk of the offseason moves having been made, it looks like at least some people like the Canes’ odds at a Stanley Cup in 2023.

IIHF World Junior Championships

There is hockey being played this month, after all.

The 2022 International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) World Junior Championships, which were originally scheduled to take place from December 26 to January 2 and had to be postponed after COVID-19 concerns, will take place next week. From Tuesday August 9th to Saturday August 20th, the best players under 20 in the world will face off in Edmonton.

Carolina tied some history in the initial attempt at the event, have 10 prospects nominated to represent their country. Now, due to injuries and the withdrawal of Russia by the IIHF, the franchise will only have four participating prospects.

  • Ronan Seeley – Canada (D)
  • Nikita Quapp – Germany (G)
  • Aleksi Heimosalmi – Finland (D)
  • City Koivunen – Finland (V)

Nikishin in motion

Speaking of the franchise’s potential future, another young man who fits that bill is Alexander Nikishin, taken by Carolina in the third round of the 2020 draft.

Already 6 feet 4 inches, 216 pounds. The 20-year-old defender was traded to the KHL last week from Spartak Moskva to SKA St. Petersburg for the rights of nine players. Yes, you read that right. Nine for one.

Nikishin, clearly highly sought after by the SKA powerhouse, has already played parts of three seasons in the league and represented the Russian Olympic Committee at the 2022 Olympics.
