The Carolina Hurricanes announced their 23-man roster, 13 of whom are draftees, for this year’s Traverse City Prospects Tournament. The tournament, which runs from September 12 to September 16, is an effective outlet for teams and fans alike to observe important prospects prior to the season.

The Canes roster contains many expected names like recent first-round pick Haydn Fleury, promising youngsters Brock McGinn and Victor Rask, and goalies Nedeljkovic and Altshuller. Among those offered a Tournament invite, the most interesting is most likely defenseman Jake Chelios. Jake is the son of retired hockey great Chris Chelios.
Expectations are a bit melancholy at this point given the intermingling of draftees and invitees. McGinn and Rask should be the bright spots, but others could assert themselves. One can only hope that they perform well in front of our front office. Hopefully, the future is bright.
