As the Carolina Hurricanes approach their 10-year anniversary of winning the Stanley Cup, Tripp Tracy sat down with 9-season (2001-2011) Hurricanes forward, Erik Cole, to discuss his time with the Hurricanes and his remarkable comeback after suffering a fractured vertebra in his neck after getting hit by Pittsburgh Penguins defenseman, Brooks Opik.

While the injury kept Erik out of the Hurricanes’ lineup until Game 6 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Finals, he was able to make a quick return in Game 7 due to the exceptional care and treatment from Duke Orthopaedic Spine Surgeon, William Richardson, MD. The Hurricanes went on to win the Stanley Cup in Game 7 over the Edmonton Oilers.
