2006–07 Carolina Hurricanes season

The 2006–07Carolina Hurricanesseason began as the defending Stanley Cup champions started to defend their title. The Hurricanes did not make any substantial changes to their roster, hoping that their lineup would be enough to get them a repeat as NHL champions. However, due to many factors, including a shortened off-season due to last season’s Stanley Cup run, injuries and disappointing performances from the team’s young stars (including Eric Staal and Cam Ward), the team failed to qualify for the post-season becoming the first team since the 1995–96New Jersey Devils to miss the playoffs after winning the Stanley Cup the previous year.
