Hurricanes: Tony DeAngelo is really cheap

Note to National Hockey League teams looking to sign a right-handed defenseman: The Carolina Hurricanes are all but ready to trade Tony DeAngelo.

It's a difficult season for the offensive guard, who finds himself lower in the pecking order on the team's blue line. According to Daily Faceoff journalist Frank Seravalli, the Canes would like to offer the 28-year-old athlete a change of scenery.

So they would only need a fifth-round draft pick and could also keep half of DeAngelo's $1.675 million salary.

The American returned to the Hurricanes after the second year of his contract was bought out by the Philadelphia Flyers last summer. After putting up 51 points in 64 games in Carolina in 2021-2022, he only put up 10 points in 27 games this time around.
