I guess everyone's definition of "Cape Verde hurricane" is different-- because I never considered Hazel 1954 a Cape Verde hurricane. I consider a CV 'cane to be one that becomes an actual cyclone (tropical depression or greater) E of 40W and S of 20N. I know others have different definitions, and I'm not suggesting mine is necessarily the best. But Hazel's point of origin (at almost 60W) doesn't suggest a CV hurricane to me.
Nothing's impossible-- but climatologically, Cape Verde hurricanes hitting the USA in October are extremely rare-- so, it would still surprise me greatly to see it happen again. That doesn't mean I'm saying it won't happen-- just that it's extremely rare and goes against what one would expect based on climatology.
P.S. Here's Chris Landsea's take on Cape Verde hurricanes: http://www.aoml.noaa.gov/hrd/tcfaq/A2.html
He considers a CV 'cane to be one that forms within ~600 mi of those islands-- but, interestingly, he admits that there's no formal definition and that the term is essentially used subjectively:
Cape Verde-type hurricanes are those Atlantic basin tropical cyclones that develop into tropical storms fairly close (<1000 km [600 mi] or so) of the Cape Verde Islands and then become hurricanes before reaching the Caribbean. (That would be my definition, there may be others.) Typically, this may occur in August and September, but in rare years (like 1995) there may be some in late July and/or early October. The numbers range from none up to around five per year - with an average of around 2.
