Ryan Back To Albany, Eaves Out, Others Close To Returning

The Canes have reassigned forward Michael Ryan to the AHL's Albany River Rats, according to a release from the team. Ryan averaged 5:33 in the two games he's played with Carolina, registering four shots on goal.

The move means someone from the injury pile should be ready to play Wednesday. It won't be Patrick Eaves. He's out indefinitely, according to LSB. With Ryan reassigned to Albany, either (or perhaps both?) Matt Cullen or Brandon Sutter should be returning for the game vs. Washington at the RBC Center. Both have returned to practice.

LSB also reports that injured defensemen Joni Pitkanen and Frank Kaberle are close to coming back. Pitkanen is practicing with the team and Kaberle is back skating.
