Sutter, Nodl Placed on Waivers
In an effort to whittle their roster down to the maximum of 23 players, the Carolina Hurricanes placed forwards Brett Sutter and Andreas Nodl on waivers Wednesday morning.

The other 29 teams in the NHL will now have a chance to claim the pair of forwards until noon on Thursday.

According to President and General Manager Jim Rutherford, Sutter, requires waivers in order to be assigned to Charlotte, the desired destination for the 25-year-old.

Nodl, who was claimed by the Canes off waivers from Philadelphia on Nov. 29, 2011, is in a different situation, according to Rutherford.

“I think there’s a possibility he’ll get claimed,” Rutherford said of Nodl, who is in the final year of his one-way contract. “He’s a very useful player. He plays a good role. If he doesn’t get claimed, I’ve been contacted by teams as far as possibly having to trade out a contract that makes sense for both teams. So, we’ll go through those steps first. If those things don’t happen, he would report to Charlotte.”

Nodl, 25, played 48 games with Carolina in 2011-12, recording three goals and four assists. He's logged 35 points (15g, 20a) in 175 career NHL games.

Minus Sutter and Nodl, the Hurricanes are currently carrying 24 active players – 14 forwards, eight defensemen and two goaltenders. Rutherford said the team will likely carry one extra defensemen and two extra forwards. Final roster decisions, especially if it involves a player that must be exposed to waivers, will have to be made Thursday morning. Otherwise, Rutherford said it would be Thursday night at the latest when the final cuts are made.
