More Training Camp News - Groups A and B Defined

Bryan Rodney will have to make the team the old fashioned way. He'll have to earn it. (photo taken last season by LTD)

The Carolina Hurricanes recently released some updated training camp news.  The club created two rosters and tweaked the schedule a bit so that both groups could practice at different times.  The veterans are included in Group A while the prospects and probable River Rats are in Group B.

Defenseman Jonathan Paiement was a last minute addition and will also be a part of the B Group.  The blueliner played for the River Rats as well as the Everblades last season with mixed reviews.  

Interestingly enough, defensemen Jay Harrison and Brett Carson are in group A while previous front runner to make the team Bryan Rodney is with the prospects.  We will have to keep close tabs on that situation.  Once again, Rodney is the powerplay specialist, so it is a bit surprising to see him behind Harrison and Carson at this stage.  At one point last season, Jim Rutherford said that a "position was Rodney's to lose" this year, although Carson also performed well when called upon.

Brandon Sutter and Zach Boychuk are also in Group B.

The camp schedule has more or less doubled so they can now handle multiple ice sessions.  There usually will be afternoon practices following the morning ones.  Check for details after the jump.
