Tuomo Ruutu trying out Face Shield

New, comments

Carolina Hurricanes forward, Tuomo Ruutu is trying out a face shield this preseason.  For those wondering, he does not have an injury, he is just experimenting with it a bit.  We will try to find out more later after he makes a decision whether to keep it or not.

The Caniac Carnival was well attended this afternoon and fans seemed to have a good time.  The team worked on the powerplay for most of the open practice, but goals seemed few and far between.  Rod Brind'Amour made a couple of nice shots though.

Afterwards, the team announced the roster for the game against Atlanta on Monday night:

  • Brind'Amour, Samsonov, Walker
  • Yelle, Kostopoulos, Conboy
  • Sutter, Boychuk, Bowman
  • Ryan, Dwyer, Goertzen
  • Alberts, Wallin
  • Harrison, Carson
  • Rodney, McBain
  • Leighton, Peters

Paul Maurice said that he intends to give the Sutter line plenty of minutes.  Michael Leighton will probably play the entire game in net.

In other news, Anton Babchuk has reportedly signed with Avangard Omsk.  The Canes were trying to trade his rights, but apparently did not get enough in return for him.
