The Carolina Hurricanes announced Sunday that forward Tuomo Ruutu has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Sept. 21.

Ruutu missed the final two games of Carolina’s preseason schedule with a lower-body injury, which is not related to the hip injury he had last season.

The Hurricanes open the regular season on Friday at PNC Arena against the Detroit Red Wings.
