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."

It doesn't mean anything in the standings, but the Carolina Hurricanes are 2-0 to begin their seven-game exhibition schedule.

The preseason exists as an evaluation tool and is used to fine-tune certain aspects of systems and player conditioning before the regular season begins. But the early results are nice, too.

The Hurricanes topped the Washington Capitals 2-1 in overtime and bested the Tampa Bay Lightning 3-2 in their first preseason action this week.

"It feels good. It feels like there are a lot of guys competing for spots," goaltender Eddie Lack said. "Everyone is super focused. It's nice to see the guys again and how much everyone has developed over the summer. It's been good so far."
