The Hurricanes made their first major addition to the blue line via trade on Wednesday, sending the RFA rights to Warren Foegele to Edmonton for young defenseman Ethan Bear.
Bear spoke to the media via Zoom Friday about joining the Hurricanes, here’s a full breakdown of everything he had to say:
On leaving his home and the community in Western Canada: It’s really interesting. This is the first time I’ve had to experience this. It’s been a pretty crazy couple days. Obviously I got a lot of support and a lot of people who are going to miss me here, but at the same time, I’m excited to be a Hurricane and to get to Carolina.
