Hurricanes activate Ruutu from injured reserve

The Carolina Hurricanes activated forward Tuomo Ruutu from injured reserve, president and general manager Jim Rutherford announced Sunday.

Ruutu was placed on IR on Sept. 29, retroactive to Sept. 21, with a lower-body injury and has missed the Hurricanes' first five games of the regular season. He will play Sunday at PNC Arena against the Phoenix Coyotes on the fourth line in place of Kevin Westgarth.

Quote of the Day

Life's about opportunity and how you respond to that opportunity, and obviously he must have some swagger about him, some confidence about him, because he was solid. He made some good saves. He was 6-foot-3 on every shot, which is a good thing for a goalie. He played well. We got a win.
