On the eve of puck drop in the 2019-20 regular season, the Carolina Hurricanes Opening Night roster is set.

The Hurricanes, who have around $1.5 million in cap space to spare, are currently carrying 20 players on their active roster, all of whom will dress for the team's home opener versus the Montreal Canadiens on Thursday night.


Defenseman Trevor van Riemsdyk, who has been practicing with the team in a no-contact setting, is on the non-roster injured reserve list while he works his way back to a clean bill of health following shoulder surgery in early May.

Forwards: Sebastian Aho, Ryan Dzingel, Warren Foegele, Erik Haula, Jordan Martinook (A), Brock McGinn, Martin Necas, Nino Niederreiter, Jordan Staal (C), Andrei Svechnikov, Teuvo Teravainen, Lucas Wallmark

Defensemen: Joel Edmundson, Haydn Fleury, Jake Gardiner, Dougie Hamilton, Brett Pesce, Jaccob Slavin (A)

Goalies: Petr Mrazek, James Reimer

Injured: Trevor van Riemsdyk (shoulder)

The Hurricanes waived forward Max McCormick, who was previously on the non-roster injured reserve list. Pending waiver clearance on Thursday at noon, the Hurricanes can then assign him to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.
