Canes to Return to Traverse City Rookie Tourney
RALEIGH, NCRon Francis, Vice President of Hockey Operations for the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes will participate in the 2013 NHL Prospects Tournament from Sept. 5-9, in Traverse City, MI. This marks Carolina’s fourth appearance at the annual tournament, hosted by the Detroit Red Wings. The Hurricanes’ squad won the tournament in 2009.

Jeff Daniels, head coach and general manager of Carolina’s American Hockey League affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers, will coach the Hurricanes’ team along with Charlotte assistant coach Geordie Kinnear. Teams will be comprised of drafted players and signees from each of the eight participating NHL clubs, as well as amateur tryout invitees. A limited number of players with prior professional experience, but in no case more than one full season, are eligible to compete.

The Hurricanes’ squad for the 2013 tournament is comprised 14 players drafted by Carolina, including first-round draft picks Elias Lindholm (2013 – 5th overall) and Ryan Murphy (2011 – 12th overall). The tournament also will mark the first game action in a Hurricanes uniform for second-round pick (2012 – 47th overall) Brock McGinn, as well as third-round pick (2010 – 67th overall) and 2013 Harvard graduate Danny Biega. Six tryout invitees will round out Carolina’s tournament squad. A complete roster for the Hurricanes’ team at the 2013 NHL Prospects Tournament can be found here.

The Hurricanes will open tournament play on Thursday, Sept. 5, against the New York Rangers at 3:30 p.m. Carolina then will take on the Columbus Blue Jackets on Friday, Sept. 6, at 3:30 p.m., before finishing round-robin play against the Buffalo Sabres on Sunday, Sept. 8, at 3:30 p.m. Once the eight teams have finished round-robin play in two groups, each team will play a final game on Monday, Sept. 9, to determine final tournament ranking, with the championship game taking place at 7:30 p.m. All games will take place at Centre Ice Arena, the training camp home of the Red Wings.
