Hurricanes reactivate D Corvo, place Ruutu on IR @NHLdotcom

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) -The Carolina Hurricanes have activated defenseman Joe Corvo while placing forward Tuomo Ruutu on injured reserve.

The team announced the moves on Wednesday.

Corvo's lower right leg was cut by Washington defenseman Karl Alzner's skate in a collision during the first period of a game on Nov. 30. The cut required surgery, and Corvo missed 28 games.

Ruutu has been out since he sustained an upper-body injury in a fight against Colorado's Darcy Tucker on Jan. 8.
