The Carolina Hurricanes placed forwards Erik Cole and Chad LaRose on injured reserve today. LaRose had been fighting a lower body injury for some time and is expected to miss 3-4 weeks, but Cole is suffering from an upper body concern which must be something fairly new. He has played well in the past few games for the Canes but now is expected to be out 2-3 weeks.
The team is recalling forwards Patrick Dwyer and newly acquired Jiri Tlusty from Albany. River Rats leading scorer, Jerome Samson has not been recalled yet, even though he has been getting rave reviews from the AHL.
More about this later.
