Canes Activate Tim Gleason from Injured Reserve
Expected to play 600th NHL game tonight; Brett Bellemore placed on injured reserve
Gleason, 30, has yet to make his regular-season debut after suffering a concussion in Carolina’s preseason game on Sept. 21 at Montreal. The Clawson, MI, native is in his 10th NHL season, and his eighth with the Hurricanes, and will play his 600th NHL game with his next game played. Prior to missing the team’s first 10 games this season, Gleason (6’0”, 217 lbs.) had missed just six games in each of the last three NHL seasons. He ranks fourth in franchise history in games played by a defenseman (474), behind only Glen Wesley (913), Adam Burt (626) and Niclas Wallin (517).
