Trade: Hurricanes Move Dylan Coghlan To Western Conference


He played just one game in the NHL for the Carolina Hurricanes this past season, and now restricted free agent Dylan Coghlan will be moving on for a fresh start, as the Canes have shipped him to the Winnipeg Jets for future considerations.
With top offensive defenseman Scott Morrow now on board, along with the re-signing of Ty Smith and the addition of Riley Stillman, the Hurricanes were satisfied with their depth on the blueline, and have given the offensive defenseman Coghlan a chance with a new organization.

The 26-year-old spent most of this past season as a top-pairing d-man with the Springfield Thunderbirds in the AHL, showing his ability to create offense from the blueline, including a big shot, with 16 goals and 25 assists for 41 points in 61 games. 
He arrived in Carolina two summers ago, and played just 17 games with the Canes in 2022-23, and just a single game this past year. 

The Jets lost Brenden Dillon in free agency, and are hoping Coghlan can help as they look to fill that void.
