Dougie Hamilton wants to set the record straight.
He’s not a huge fan of museums.
"Not really," chuckled the Hurricanes defenceman following Sunday morning skate in Edmonton.
Too bad, as the 25-year-old was welcomed to Raleigh last summer with invites to several galleries.
Making his return to Alberta for the first time since the summer blockbuster that saw him traded by Calgary to Carolina, Hamilton knows he’ll be the focal point Monday when his squad practices in Calgary.
However, on Sunday the towering Toronto native respectfully addressed questions surrounding a swap dripping in innuendo over his conduct as a reclusive teammate and questioning his character.
As one broadcaster famously suggested when asked about Hamilton being a bit of an outlier: while teammates went to lunch, he went to the museum.
