Canes to Return to Traverse City Rookie Tourney
RALEIGH, NC – Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the Hurricanes will participate in the 2014 NHL Prospects Tournament from Sept. 12-16, in Traverse City, MI. This marks Carolina’s fifth 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 (AHL) 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 2014 tournament is comprised of 13 players drafted by Carolina, including first-round draft pick Haydn Fleury (2014 – 7th overall), and second-round picks Phil Di Giuseppe (2012 – 38th overall), Brock McGinn (2012 – 47th overall), Alex Nedeljkovic (2014 – 37th overall) and Victor Rask (2011 – 42nd overall). Joining the team’s drafted players are Hurricanes free-agent signees Patrick Brown, Carter Sandlak and Sergey Tolchinsky, 2014 Brown University graduate Dennis Robertson whom the team acquired via trade in January, and six tryout invitees. A complete roster can be found here

The Hurricanes will open tournament play on Friday, Sept. 12, against the Buffalo Sabres at 4 p.m. Carolina then will take on the Dallas Stars on Saturday, Sept. 13, at 3:30 p.m., before finishing round-robin play against the New York Rangers on Monday, Sept. 15 at 6:30 p.m. Once the eight teams have finished round-robin play in two groups, each team will play a final game on Tuesday, Sept. 16, to determine final tournament ranking. All games will take place at Centre Ice Arena, the training camp home of the Red Wings. Click here for more information on the 2014 NHL Prospects Tournament.
