It seems Calvin de Haan
wanted to make sure there were no hard feelings after an old tweet from September of 2019. In the initial three-year-old exchange, a podcast host asks the Carolina Hurricanes to sign de Haan to a new deal after he played with them in the previous season. de Haan's response at the time was simply "I'll pass".
Well, after playing the next three seasons in Chicago, the blueliner signed a professional tryout deal with the Hurricanes earlier this month, which led to a full-fledged one-year contract for $850,000 on Saturday. For whatever reason, and perhaps just because he thought it was funny, de Haan himself returned to that tweet Saturday to correct it.
Good on de Haan for being willing to poke some fun at himself. The 31-year-old veteran of more than 500 regular season NHL games is set to begin his 11th season in the league.
