Canes Give up on Bobby Hughes - Trade Forward to Islanders for Rob Hennigar

The Carolina Hurricanes announced today that they have traded forward Bobby Hughes to the New York Islanders for center Rob Hennigar.  Hughes was a fourth round draft pick of the Canes back in 2006.  After a great junior career at Kingston where he scored 75 goals and had 171 points in his last two seasons, the forward suffered from one set back after another in Albany. 

Henniger is a 26 year old prospect who split time last season between the Bridgeport Sound Tigers of the AHL and the Utah Grizzlies of the ECHL. 

The franchise had high hopes for Hughes at one time, but apparently has decided to move on.  The trade is contingent upon the forward passing a physical before Thursday at 3PM.
