RALEIGH, NC - Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League's Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has received approval from the NHL to begin training camp practice on Thursday afternoon. The move will allow the team to cancel practice on either Friday or Saturday in order to keep players and staff off of the roads when Raleigh is expected to face its worst effects from Hurricane Florence.
