The Carolina Hurricanes prospects opened up their tournament with a 5-3 win on Sunday over last year's tournament champions, the New York Rangers.  The Canes worked their way to a 3-1 lead, watched it evaporate into a tie, then scored the last two goals of the game to lock up the win.  Chip Alexander has a story in today's N&O.

Goals were scored by Drayson Bowman, Matt Kennedy, Zach Boychuk, Elgin Reid, and Brandon Sutter.  The Rangers also have a very good review of the game on their team site.

Hockey's Future has a video which includes Canes footage at about the three minute mark. The players were just taking the ice and coach Jeff Daniels was asked a couple of questions. Daniels said that Nick Dodge would be team captain.


The Hurricanes will take on Detroit in a game starting later today at 6:30.  The Wings also won their first game, beating Atlanta, 6-4.  Canes Country will be tracking this on Tweeter and on the scoreboard just like we did yesterday.  It's not as good as watching the game, but it's better than nothing.  Thanks to all who participated and helped out with links yesterday.

Here is the roster for both sides.  Justin McRae has a groin pull and sat out yesterday leaving the team short one forward.  He is day-to-day.  It looks like Rasmus Rissanen from Finland could not make it.  There is no official word from the Canes about this.

(UPDATE) - Markus just sent me an email, it seems that Rissanen is injured and had offseason surgery.  Here is a partial quote from the article he sent.

Rissanen will not participate in training camp, however, as he’s recovering from an upper-body injury that required offseason surgery. He’s expected to be cleared for full contact within the next two weeks

Many thanks to Markus!

Happy Labor Day to all.
