RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes assigned defensemen Casey Borer and Brett Carson to their AHL affiliate in Albany on Friday, trimming the roster to 23 players before their final preseason game against Columbus.
The 22-year-old Borer had a goal and an assist and a plus-minus rating of plus-three in three preseason games. He was taken by Carolina in the third round of the 2004 draft out of St. Cloud State.
Carson, a 21-year-old picked by the Hurricanes in the fourth round in 2004, didn't score in four preseason games.
