Canes Activate Walker from Injured Reserve

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has activated right wing Scott Walker from injured reserve. Rutherford also announced that forward Dan LaCouture has cleared waivers and will join the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate, the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League.

Walker, 35, has been sidelined for Carolina’s first 11 games of the season following an Oct. 6 surgery on his left hand. The Cambridge, Ont., native sustained ligament damage when he tangled with Philadelphia Flyers defenseman Nathan Guenin in the teams’ preseason game on Sept. 28. Walker (5’10”, 196 lbs.) is in his third season with the Hurricanes and his 14th NHL season.

The Carolina Hurricanes begin a two-game road trip tonight at Toronto (7:30 p.m., FS Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network), and will wrap up the short trip at Washington on Thursday (7 p.m., FS Carolinas HD, Hurricanes Radio Network). The Hurricanes return to the RBC Center on Friday, Nov. 7, to face the Ottawa Senators in the first game of a three-game home stand. For information on Hurricanes ticket packages, visit www.CarolinaHurricanes.com or call 1-866-NHL-CANES. Single-game Hurricanes tickets for all November and December games are available at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center, CarolinaHurricanes.com, by calling 919-834-4000 and all Ticketmaster outlets.
