Injury Updates on Sutter, Pitkanen

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that center Brandon Sutter suffered a concussion in the Hurricanes' game on Saturday at the New York Islanders. Sutter, 19, has been discharged from a Long Island hospital and will return to Raleigh where he will be further reviewed by the Hurricanes' medical staff later this week.

Rutherford also announced that Carolina defenseman Joni Pitkanen suffered a torn meniscus during Saturday's game. Dr. Marty Isbell will perform surgery this week at Rex Hospital in Raleigh to repair Pitkanen's knee. Pitkanen, 25, is expected to miss three to four weeks of action.

The Hurricanes continue their season-long six-game road swing at Montreal on Tuesday (7:30 p.m., Hurricanes Radio Network) and will play at St. Louis on Thursday before returning to Raleigh. Carolina will host the Edmonton Oilers at the RBC Center on Saturday, Nov. 1, in the first of 11 home games for the Hurricanes during November.
