The Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday reduced their training camp roster and assigned seven players to the Chicago Wolves, their partner in the American Hockey League.
Strikers Dominik Bokk, David Cotton, Stelio Mattheos and Blake Murray were assigned to the Wolves; Defender Jesper Sellgren and goalkeepers Eetu Makiniemi and Beck Warm.
Sellgren and Cotton played the Canes’ second preseason game against Tampa Bay Lightning on Friday. Makiniemi was Antti Raanta’s substitute goalkeeper.
The canes who didn’t train on Saturday have cut the roster to 40 players. After a team scrimmage Sunday in the PNC Arena, they will hold individual training exercises against the New York Rangers before the regular season opener on October 14th.
The Canes have two preseason games remaining, both against the Nashville Predators. The Canes host the Preds on Tuesday at the PNC Arena in a 7pm game.
