Training Camp Updates
Note: Information is taken from Hurricanes’ beat writers like Chip Alexander and Michael Smith. However opinions are my own
- Semin, Ruutu, Gleason, Skinner and Lindholm missed practice yesterday.
- However, Muller said Semin would practice today. Also said Skinner could return to practice.
- Ruutu’s status of injury was not given, but Rutherford said the injury was not the hip he had surgery on over the summer.
- The team is hoping that Semin and Skinner will be ready for the season opener. My guess is both of them will be. They may rejoin practice today and have four days to get ready for the opener.
- Patrick Dwyer did not play with Jordan Staal and Gerbe. This may signal that Ruutu is closer than we think if Dwyer, who had been playing on the line was taken off.
