Report: Hurricanes hope to move defenseman for another top-6 forward
One new player up front may not be enough for the Carolina Hurricanes.
The club still hopes to land another top-six forward before the Feb. 25 trade deadline in exchange for a defenseman, TSN's Pierre LeBrun reports.
Carolina boasts a wealth of solid blue-liners, including Jaccob Slavin, Brett Pesce, Calvin de Haan, Justin Faulk, and Dougie Hamilton.
The Hurricanes acquired winger Nino Niederreiter from the Minnesota Wild in exchange for center Victor Rask on Thursday.
Niederreiter joins a forward group that includes Sebastian Aho, Teuvo Teravainen, Andrei Svechnikov, and Micheal Ferland, who's reportedly garnering interest from several other clubs.
