Teravainen was acquired by Carolina on June 16, 2016, along with in exchange for a second-round selection in the 2016 NHL Draft and a third-round pick in 2017.

Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that forward Bryan Bickell has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS).

Bickell, 30, won three Stanley Cups with Chicago before coming to Carolina in the offseason. He had been out since October, was diagnosed with MS in November and began practicing last month with the Hurricanes, who formally assigned him to Charlotte on Friday.

Bickell, 31, is battling multiple sclerosis. He signed a one-day contract with the Blackhawks, and it was quite a day or so. He met the press Wednesday, supported by family and a box of Kleenex. Thursday afternoon, he partook of the annual red carpet ceremony just outside the United Center where fans greet current players and Hall of Fame ambassadors. Bickell couldn’t wipe that smile off his face.

Apart from his hands-on advice, Harding has also helped simply by being a sounding board, someone who understands intimately the nature of the now-competing narratives that will dominate Bickell’s life moving forward — battling the disease and fighting to stay in the game nhl jerseys sale.

He returned from injured reserve on April 4 and played four games with Carolina before his final game. Bickell and his wife, Amanda, have two daughters, Makayla and Kinslee.

The following players are also unrestricted free agents: forwards Bryan Bickell (who will be retiring), Patrick Brown, Danny Kristo, Jay McClement and Brendan Woods, defensemen Dennis Robertson, Philip Samuelsson and Matt Tennyson and goaltender Michael Leighton.

During Saturday’s home finale, he received a pair of ovations from the crowd, including one when he was announced as the winner of the team’s Steve Chiasson Award for determination and dedication to the game. That award is determined by a vote of the players.

The one thing that Harding cannot give Bickell is the answer he wants to hear: that he will definitely, at some point, return to being an NHL player. NHL-Bryan Bickell, 30, scored one goal in seven games with the Hurricanes this season prior to being placed on the injured reserve list after his diagnosis.

After being diagnosed with MS last winter, Bickell finished what would be his last season with the Carolina Hurricanes. He had announced his imminent retirement, but there would be one more lap. In the last game of the season, Bickell was chosen as the first man up in a shootout at Philadelphia. Ever the sniper, Bickell scored and the Hurricanes beat the Flyers 4-3.

Playing for the Carolina Hurricanes’ AHL affiliate in Charlotte, Bickell logged about 10 minutes of ice time while playing on the fourth line in the Checkers’ 6-1 victory over Cleveland on Saturday night.
