The Carolina Hurricanes announced today that forward Tuomo Ruutu will undergo shoulder surgery and will miss the rest of this season.  He had been suffering from this problem for some time, (perhaps from as far back as the Darcy Tucker fight). 

Ruutu missed 13 games before returning just before the Olympic break in mid-February.  His point production since the Olympics was way down from where it was earlier in the year.

Coach Paul Maurice was quoted as saying the forward could "no longer play the game he needs to play."

The Hurricanes will make another recall from Albany which will be officially announced a bit later.
