Follow-up of intrigues
General repetition : In last week’s two games, the roster was limited to a handful of players who are expected to be part of the squad’s roster on opening night, with a focus on the playing experience. from the younger group in the NHL. That won’t be the case tonight, as tonight’s lineup will be much closer to what we’ll see next Thursday.
Great opportunity for Jarvis: If you missed yesterday’s notebook, choice of the first round of the 2020 draft Seth jarvis will play tonight instead of the center Vincent Trocheque. The decision stems from an abundance of caution for the forward entering his second full season with the Canes, having left Sunday’s Red-White scrum with an injury. Jarvis should play with Nino Niederreiter and Jack Drury, while playing on the team’s best power play unit.
Back to Rants: Although he played Friday night in Tampa, Antti Raanta will start in goal for the second straight preseason game tonight. There could be a plethora of reasons for this move, but perhaps most appreciated by the Finnish keeper is that he has the chance to redeem himself after an outing in which he allowed seven goals.
