New, comments
Carolina Hurricanes defenseman, Joni Pitkanen, to miss two weeks because of minor knee surgery.

Chip Alexander from Canes Now is reporting that Hurricanes defenseman, Joni Pitkanen is having knee trouble and will have minor surgery.  He is expected to miss a couple of weeks.  (Training camp).  Pitkanen led all Canes skaters in average ice time last season.   

This is not a good way to start training camp, but it opens the door for youngsters Bryan Rodney, Jamie McBain, Brett Carson, or Jay Harrison
