Former first-round pick at risk of being traded again

The Carolina Hurricanes have seven defenceman on their NHL roster currently, four of whom are set to become unrestricted free agents in July 2024.

During this past summer, there were rumours that the Hurricanes could move on from Brett Pesce, who is one of the four pending UFAs, but on the 'Saturday Headlines' segment on Hockey Night in Canada, Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman mentioned another name - Tony DeAngelo.

Friedman started off by saying that the Hurricanes are looking to move a defenceman off their NHL roster, with Brett Pesce coming back from injury and went on to add that one name he's hearing a lot about is Tony DeAngelo.

"With Brett Pesce returning from injury, there's word that Carolina is looking to move a defenceman and a name I'm hearing a lot out there is Tony DeAngelo. But there are a lot of other things that the Carolina Hurricanes will potentially consider." Friedman said.

DeAngelo, 28, was signed to a one-year contract by the Carolina Hurricanes this past summer after being bought by the Philadelphia Flyers. For various reasons, DeAngelo has found himself three time so far in his National Hockey League career. In 2016, the Lightning dealt him to Arizona, then one year later the Coyotes traded him to the Rangers. In July 2022, the Hurricanes moved him to the Philadelphia Flyers.

In 12 games this season, the 2014 19th overall pick has recorded five assists, 12 penalty minutes and is a minus-seven.
