When the Carolina Hurricanes play their first of two preseason games at PNC Arena tonight, a rather experienced lineup will take the ice.
Every forward except for two - Sebastian Aho, who is projected to make the team, and Lucas Wallmark, who will play in North America this year - have prior NHL experience. And all defensemen save Haydn Fleury, who is turning pro this season, have logged games in the NHL.
"A few more of the guys we predict to be in the lineup will play tonight," assistant coach Rod Brind'Amour said. "We'll see how it all jells. That's the step we're looking for, to see who plays well with who."
