Hughes, 21, appeared 27 games last season for the Albany River Rats in the American Hockey League. He had 4 goals, 3 assists and 27 penalty minutes. He also had an assist in two appearances with the ECHL's Florida Everblades. Hughes was selected by Carolina in the fourth round of the 2006 Entry Draft.

Hennigar, 26, split last season between AHL Bridgeport and Utah of the ECHL. In 34 games with Bridgeport, the undrafted center had 3 goals, 10 assists and 18 penalty minutes. He went 15-44-59 with 40 penalty minutes in 38 appearances for Utah.
Quote of the Day

I first met him when I was 19 years old and he coached me for 13 consecutive years. I don't know how many athletes who have had that pleasure. Al Arbour was a man that left us not only feeling like champions, but left us with a lot of great memories that we can carry on through life.
