Training Camp Updates
Note: Information is taken from Hurricanes beat reporters such as Chip Alexander and Michael Smith, however opinions are my own.
- Sergey Tolchinsky left his practice early. Could be a possible minor injury.
- Nathan Gerbe did not take part in practice and will miss a couple of days because of personal reasons.
- Skinner, Lindholm and Dvorak played on a line together.
- Some defensive combinations: Sekera & Faulk, Komisarek & Gleason, Murphy & Harrison, Jordan & Bellemore
- Jordan Staal played on a line with Tuomo Ruutu and Zac Dalpe: I’m surprised by this because I would think a defensive winger would play with those two, not a more offensive one like Dalpe.
- Riley Nash skated with Patrick Dwyer and Drayson Bowman: This could be an excellent defensive/fourth-line for the Canes. We’ll see if they stick together in the future.
