Hurricanes claim Hall on waivers from Lightning

The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed Adam Hall on waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced Saturday morning.

Hall had four assists in 20 games for the Lightning this season. When he packs up his gear, he won't have to take it very far -- the Hurricanes are in Tampa, Fla., and play the Lightning on Saturday night so Hall could make his Carolina debut against his former club.

"Adam gives us an added penalty killer," Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford said on Twitter (@HurricanesGM). "He plays the wing, but can also play center and is a very good face-off man."

Quote of the Day

He's only 17 but he can see the ice so well and he moves the puck and goes to the open ice all the time, so I just think he's a player that is ready to play in the NHL. I'm really looking forward to coaching someone like this.
