Hurricanes Training Update
Note: Information is taken from Hurricanes’ beat writers like Chip Alexander and Michael Smith. However opinions are my own.
- Matt Corrente practiced as a forward with Semin, Lindholm and Ruutu still out.
- However, Muller said Semin could still play in the season opener. Let’s hope he does because the offense will be seriously hurting without him.
- Dvorak was still in camp, playing with E. Staal and Tlusty.
- J. Staal was with Dwyer and Gerbe. Nash with Skinner and Bowman and Sutter, Corrente and Westgarth on the fourth.
- Gerbe played with E. Staal and Tlusty on the power-play, while Skinner took Gerbe’s spot on the second line.
- Faulk and Murphy were the defensemen for the first unit, Sekera and Harrison for the second.
