Babchuk Activated - Could Play Tonight

The Carolina Hurricanes just activated Anton Babchuk from the injured reserve list. The defenseman could be called upon to play tonight against Florida. This news from the Hurricanes presser-


RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has activated defenseman Anton Babchuk from injured reserve. Babchuk, who has missed Carolina’s last three games with an elbow injury, is eligible to play in the Hurricanes’ game tonight against the Florida Panthers.


Babchuk., 24, has totaled one goal and three assists (4 points) in 22 games this season. The Kiev, Ukraine native was originally acquired by the Hurricanes from the Chicago Blackhawks on Jan. 20, 2006, in exchange for Danny Richmond. In 118 career NHL games with Chicago and Carolina, he has totaled eight goals, 22 assists (30 points) and 62 penalty minutes.



No official word about Brett Carson, the young defenseman who had carried himself so well while with the Canes. But the Hurricanes would have had to clear roster space to make room for Babchuk, so it would seem Carson is on his way back to Albany.
