The Carolina Hurricanes released their roster today for the Traverse City Tournament taking place next month.  Included are several recent draft picks that the franchise selected earlier this summer, including: Jeff Skinner, Austin Levi, Justin Shugg, and Tyler Stahl

A few previous picks are also included.  Mike Murphy, Michal Jordan, Tommi Kivisto, Rasmus Rissanen, Kyle Lawson, Zac Dalpe, Matt Kennedy, and Matt Pistilli will also attend.  

Newly acquired Riley Nash, Jared Staal, and Cedric McNicoll will be showing their stuff.

As we reported earlier here on Canes Country, the tournament will begin on September 11, at 3 p.m. as the Hurricanes tangle with the Minnesota Wild.

Several of Carolina's participants who won the tournament championship last year, were ineligible this season.  A limited number of players with minor league experience are allowed to participate, but none are allowed with over one year of minor league experience.  

The Canes filled in their roster with unsigned free agents, including Mike McKenzie, who attended conditioning camp in Raleigh in 2009.  You can check out the roster after the jump. 

((UPDATE)):  McKenzie was just signed to a two-way AHL/ECHL contract by the Charlotte Checkers.
