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 competed in training camp with a regular jersey instead of a non-contact jersey: The team is claiming Tlusty is fine, but he was also kept out of today’s game, while his regular linemates play. We’ll see if he is really as healthy as the team says he is.
  • Alexander Semin and Anton Khudobin had an extremely serious one-on-one session after practice
