Training Camp News
Note: Information is taken from Hurricanes beat reporters such as Chip Alexander and Michael Smith, however opinions are my own.
- The training camp roster is down to 28 players after six were sent through waivers on Sunday
- Semin, Ruutu and Gleason missed practice. Coach Kirk Muller said the injuries were not serious but the players could be kept out of the next few days.
- Lindholm skipped practice, but did some conditioning skating after the session.
- Corrente took a shot off his nose but refused stitches so he could stay on the ice. Muller also said he could play wing if need be: Corrente seems to be impressing in camp with his toughness. We’ll see if it helps him earn a surprising spot on the roster.
