Hurricanes Practice News
Note: Information is taken from beat reporters like Chip Alexander and Michael Smith. However, opinions are my own.
- Elias Lindholm returned to practice playing with Kevin Westgarth and Brett Sutter. Not a big fan of the line, if it was Radek Dvorak with Lindholm and Sutter, I could live with it, but I don’t want to see Westgarth and Lindholm together.
- Kirk Muller said Alexander Semin, who did not practice, has a 50-50 shot at playing on Friday. It’s a good sign that Semin is listed as 50-50 right now, he should get even more healthy by the season opener.
- Dvorak was still practicing with the team, despite not having a contract, playing with Eric Staal and Jiri Tlusty. There were no other changes to the lineup.
