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

Hopefully [Jonathan] has a year that pushes us, that is the organization, to speak to him next summer and looking for [a long-term contract]. Because the thought process is trying to get a goaltender, and hopefully it's Jonathan, to be the stabilizer for this franchise.
