Hurricanes Practice Updates
Note: Information is taken from beat reporters like Chip Alexander and Michael Smith. However, opinions are my own.
- Tuomo Ruutu skated for the second day of practice
- Jim Rutherford said Ruutu could be a week away from returning, which is sooner than what was originally thought.
- Mike Komisarek was the seventh defenseman in practice yesterday. I think this goes to show how strong of a training camp Brett Bellemore had. He was able to make the team and may have beat out the veteran Komisarek.
- Elias Lindholm practiced on the first power-play unit with Eric Staal and Alexander Semin.
