Hurricanes could trade surplus defensemen as NHL Draft approaches

Hurricanes could trade surplus defensemen as NHL Draft approaches The Carolina Hurricanes have had a surplus of good, young defensemen for years now. Just about every time a team was looking for help on the blue line, the Hurricanes were linked as a possible trade target. That’s what happens when you have potentially eight top-four options in the organization (including Haydn Fleury and Jake Bean), all 28 or younger.

C-101 cleared the House of Commons thanks to a late-night motion on Wednesday, then sailed through all stages of debate in the Senate in under an hour Thursday afternoon, with approval by voice votes, after only one speech in favour and one opposed.

The Sunday Times reports that Hunt — one of just two remaining candidates to replace Theresa May as party leader and prime minister — has recruited Harper and former Conservative MP Rona Ambrose.

Hunt tells the newspaper he's intent on securing a so-called "Canada-plus" trade deal with the EU, based on the Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement primarily negotiated by Harper's government.

Neither Harper nor Ambrose immediately responded to a request for comment on Sunday.
