Oh crap! With all this mess I completely lost track of the fact the Canes had to sign Henman before this past June 1st and didn't. Yeah, he's a UFA now as no team drafted him in the 2020 draft. Time to purge him from the list.Just realized that Luke Henman is still on the list. The Canes didn’t sign him so don’t have his rights anymore.

That was an interesting move by the Canes. I know that we are spending a ton of draft capital now on high skill home run shots once we get into the later rounds, but its not like we have too many players under contract. Henman isn't likely to make it to the NHL, but if he throws up a big season this year at the Q he might end up with a 2 way NHL entry level deal somewhere.
Takeaway ... goalies are weird. Hopefully he can back up that start with a full season of solid results.Considering how thin our goalie prospect pool is, hopefully LaFontaine doesn't give us the pending college UFA runaround. It didn't look very good after his first 2 seasons at Michigan, but that one really good season in the BCHL seemed to have gotten him back on track and he was pretty good for Minnesota last season.
4 wins, 1.00 GAA .961 Sv%. That is a pretty good start to his final NCAA season.
Yes and yes. Remember to keep that grain of salt handy for all of this year's results across the board. That said, he's playing well and backing up the resurgence he had last season.Wow, LaFontaine is off to a start. Is that skewed at all due to level of competition? Either way thats burning rubber out the gate.
Jack Lafontaine’s numbers in the first half of his season:
8-0-0 record .965 save percentage 1.00 GAA 2 shutouts
I assume due to the really short training camp only guys likely to make the team will be there.
