The Carolina Hurricanes and Andrei Svechnikov have started talking about a new deal.

Svechnikov still has a year left on his entry-level deal and both sides will consider a bridge deal or a long-term contract extension. "We started talking," GM Don Waddell said. "Andrei's got another year left on his contract, but we have this time in our favor right now ... Our goal is to keep Andrei here for a very long time. Saying that, with the economics the way they are right now around the league, it might make sense to do a bridge deal. I think the player definitely wants to be here. His representation's been very forthright about that (and) we obviously want Andrei here. So we're keeping it open-minded. There's no timetable if this happens two weeks from now or two months from now, but one way or another, there's no doubt that we'll sign Andrei at some point to some kind of extension." Svechnikov had an outstanding sophomore season with 24 goals and 61 points in 68 games. He is only 20 and is one of the rising stars in the NHL. Oct 03 9:06 am (EST)

Colin Wilson opened up about the fact that until recently, he's been living with an untreated case of obsessive-compulsive disorder.
Wilson was told by Predators psychologist Gary Solomon back in his 2009-10 rookie season that he had OCD. The team noticed it based on his preflight routine, which involved Wilson cleaning up every single piece of the trash around the gate and then wait to make sure he was the very last passenger on the plane. After that, he would always talk to the pilots. At the time though, he shrugged off the idea that he had OCD because he felt fine. He's coming forward with his story now though because he wonders what might have happened had he taken those initial warnings more seriously. Eventually his OCD took over his life. He'd fear things like his skates laces not being tied, so he'd retie them over and over again until his hands bled. He was in constant fear of getting injured and not being good enough and he couldn't sleep properly. To cope with that, he started alternating between taking Xanax and Seroquel, but ultimately the pills were seemed to just further amplify his poor state of mind. He hit bottom during the Predators' run to the Stanley Cup Final in 2017. "It became so bad that I remember when we beat Anaheim to win the Western Conference finals, everyone on the team was, of course, really happy. But all I wanted to do was go home and bawl my eyes out. I was a complete emotional wreck," Wilson recalled. Things are still difficult for him and he thinks he's probably played in his last hockey game, but since that low point in 2017, he's been seeking help from a variety of sources and that's been providing him with some positive results.
