Hurricanes place Samsonov on injured reserve
Sergei Samsonov won't be making the Carolina Hurricanes' season-opening trip to Finland.

The team announced Thursday that Samsonov has been placed on injured reserve after he crashed into the boards during a game last Saturday against the Atlanta Thrashers and had to be taken to a hospital on a stretcher.

Samsonov suffered a neck injury and will not travel with the team to Helsinki. He will be reassessed when the Hurricanes return from Europe.

The 31-year-old forward is entering his fourth season with Carolina. He had 14 goals and 29 points in 72 games last season.
Quote of the Day

I loved being in the jerseys again and they worked some magic for us. It was weird in warm-ups, seeing No. 22 in that jersey and thinking he’s [Mike Gartner], and No. 8 reminds you of Danny Briere … every number had me thinking back to the guys who wore them and smiling.
