Kruger, Jooris on waivers

The Hurricanes announced this afternoon that Josh Jooris and Marcus Kruger have been placed on waivers, and are likely to be assigned to Charlotte should they clear tomorrow at noon. Presumably this means that the Canes will be calling players up from the AHL for tomorrow’s game against the Canucks, the logical names being Valentin Zykov and Warren Foegele, but nothing has been confirmed yet, so stay tuned.
