No Red/White Scrimmage This Year - Hurricanes Release Training Camp Schedule

The Carolina Hurricanes released their training camp schedule yesterday, and for the first time since I can remember they will not be holding an intra-squad scrimmage this year.  In some years they have had more than one scrimmage, but there are fewer camp invitees this time around and time is short because the Canes start the season on October 2.   

Also, the prospects will have already played in a tough prospect tournament in Traverse City, Michigan.  The coaching staff will have a good chance to review their performances and make evaluations based upon the results of that tournament.

Training camp officially opens on September 12 as the players will take mandatory physicals and have photo shoots, but the players actually hit the RBC ice for the first time on September 13.  The Canes will be facing the Nashville Predators for a preseason game in Raleigh later that same week on Friday night, September 18.  

All of the on ice practice sessions at the RBC will be open to the public except for September 19 and September 26 which are home football games for the NC State Wolfpack.  The parking lots will not be accessable for hockey fans those days.   

Keep in mind that several of the Canes are already skating informally at the Rec Zone from 10 to noon each weekday.  Those sessions are also open to the public.  Our unofficial Canes Country photographer, LTD, has photos of Monday's practice here.
