Traverse City Tournament Schedule Released: Hurricanes Open Against Wild

Carolina Hurricanes number one draft pick, (seventh overall), Jeff Skinner is expected to participate in the upcoming Traverse City Tournament in Michigan.

The prospects of the Carolina Hurricanes will open the Traverse City Tournament at 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 11, against the same franchise that the NHL team will open the regular season against in Finland, the Minnesota Wild.

The "junior" Canes won this tournament last season and will be considered among the favorites again this season.  Number one draft pick Jeff Skinner is expected to participate along with newly signed ex-Cornell star, Riley Nash.  The official roster has yet to be released by the Hurricanes.

The prospects will take on the New York Rangers on Sunday as Bobby Sanguinetti will most likely get to face some of his ex-teammates.  After an off day on Monday, the team will then face Columbus on Tuesday night.  Wednesday's games will be determined after all games have been completed on Tuesday as the teams with the top records will face each other for the championship.

The teams participating are:  Carolina Hurricanes, Minnesota Wild, New York Rangers, Columbus Blue Jackets, Detroit Red Wings, Tampa Bay Lightning, Dallas Stars, and the St. Louis Blues.
