The Carolina Hurricanes' entire six-man 2011 NHL Draft class will be among the 21 players the team will bring to Michigan for the Traverse City Prospect Tournament to be held Sept. 10-14, the Hurricanes said in a press release.

Highlighting the list are two defensemen: 2011 first round pick Ryan Murphy of the OHL's Kitchener Rangers, and 2010 second round pick Justin Faulk, who turned pro at the end of the 2010-11 season after winning an NCAA title with Minnesota-Duluth his freshman season. The team will be led by Charlotte Checkers head coach/general manager Jeff Daniels.

The Hurricanes join seven other teams in participating in the tournament, and will open play on Sept. 10 against Dallas at 4 p.m. They then will face St. Louis at 3 p.m. on Sept. 12, followed by a game the next day against the New York Rangers at 3:30 p.m. Each team will play one more game on Sept. 14, with the championship game being held at 7 p.m. The Hurricanes won the tournament in 2009, their first appearance at the annual event. The other teams participating in the tournament are Buffalo, Columbus, Detroit and Minnesota.
