The Carolina Hurricanes lost their all star top defenceman, Dougie Hamilton, back on January 16th. Following a missed call that should’ve been on Columbus for too many men on the ice, Dougie got tangled up with Kevin Stenlund and fell awkwardly on his left leg and didn’t return.
It was later revealed by the Hurricanes that he had fractured his left fibula. This is a similar injury to one that Jordan Staal suffered in 2014 that caused him to miss half the season.
Now with Dougie out, that leaves a massive hole in the Hurricanes.
