Training Camp Update

Note: Information is taken from Hurricanes beat reporters such as Chip Alexander and Michael Smith, however opinions are my own.

  • Jiri Tlusty made his return to practice, but participated in the second practice instead of with his regular linemates.
  • Drayson Bowman continued to play with Staal and Semin: Bowman won’t take Tlusty’s spot, but playing three days with the first line has to be a good sign of him making the team.
  • Nathan Gerbe made his first appearance at practice, playing with Lindholm and Skinner.
  • Gerbe’s participation meant Radek Dvorak was sent to a lower line, although who he played with was not reported: Dvorak continues to move down the depth chart, which may not be a good thing, but the fourth line is where he belongs.
