The Carolina Hurricanes were one of the last teams to kick off their preseason schedule, but now after playing five games in eight days (the schedule originally called for six), the team will play the waiting game once again as they await the start of the regular season on Oct. 12 against the Columbus Blue Jackets. And with that surplus of time, one of the things head coach Rod Brind’Amour is worried about is his team losing the edge they gained from playing actual games. "That’s a little bit of a concern," Brind’Amour said. "Everyone comes in in camp-shape and I think they just need one game and can then go play. They come in in-shape, they come in ready to play. So yeah, I do worry. It’s been about two to three weeks now and I think we could have played after three or four days of this. I think that’s the same for every team. I think guys take care of themselves. " But the one positive aspect of this long break is that it gives the team more time to decide on who will be making the final roster cut

Per Mike Morreale reporting from Traverse City: "We're debating [Monday] on whether or not he'll play any of the remaining two games but I think at the end of the day we'll just rest him and get him ready for the opening of training camp on Friday rather than push him here," Hurricanes general manager Ron Francis told NHL.com.

The Carolina Hurricanes have signed Patrick Brown to a one-year contract that will pay him $650,000 in the NHL or $75,000 in the AHL next season. Brown's new salary is a slight cut from his NHL salary in 2015-16 but a significant raise over his previous AHL salary. He was signed as an undrafted free agent in 2014 and has played 14 career games with the Hurricanes, seven in each of the past two seasons.
Brown was one of seven players issued a qualifying offer yesterday by the club. This coming season will be the final one for which Brown is exempt from waivers, and he will be eligible to move between the Hurricanes and Checkers without needing to be placed on waivers.
