Carolina Hurricanes Player News: Centers

News: Suzuki has joined the club for Phase 2 skates ahead of training camp, Cory Lavalette of the North State Journal reports.
Impact: Suzuki registered 18 goals and 40 assists in 44 appearances for OHL Barrie and Saginaw this season. While the 19-year-old center should be considered a longshot to see action during the postseason, a strong camp could help him earn a place on the 23-man roster leading up to Opening Night of the 2020-21 campaign.
News: Gibbons agreed in principle Wednesday to a contract with Lausanne HC of the Swiss National League that will go into effect for the 2020-21 season, Jerome Reynard of 24Heures.ch reports.
Impact: Gibbons will remain with the Hurricanes through the conclusion of the 2019-20 campaign before continuing his career overseas next season. The 32-year-old has been playing on a two-way contract this season, appearing in 15 contests for the parent club and tallying no points across 9:46 of ice time per game.
News: Necas tallied 16 goals and 20 assists in 64 games prior to the league going on hiatus in mid-March.
Impact: The 21-year-old has had a fantasy rookie showing, as his 16 goals rank fourth among NHL rookies and his points place him seventh. For the most part, those ahead of Necas on the list have received substantially more ice time than his 14:10, suggesting he still has another gear (or two) to shift into as he develops at the NHL level. Look for big things to come from the young Czech.
