These forwards have emerged as potential acquisitions, with the Hurricanes aiming to strengthen their roster without compromising their cap space.

Over the last three seasons, the 29-year-old has scored 28 goals and 95 total points across 169 games played.

Anthony Duclair's scoring ability and quick pace make him an attractive option to inject more firepower into the lineup. Colin Blackwell, recognized for his high-energy play and versatility, could provide depth and grit to the team.

Over the last three seasons, Duclair has amassed 42 goals and 42 assists across 140 games played, split between the Florida Panthers and San Jose Sharks.

So far this season, the 30-year-old Blackwell has three goals and six points over 20 games played.

The Hurricanes, under the guidance of GM Don Waddell, seem poised to make calculated moves, focusing on immediate impact while maintaining financial flexibility, with over $6.6 million in projected trade deadline cap space at their disposal. Photo Credit: Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports
