With #1 Cam Ward out 3-4 weeks and #2 Khudobin getting close (supposedly he will be on the ice for practice Sunday) but still probably something between a few days and a week plus away, the Canes just signed Rick DiPietro to an AHL tryout contract. (Reported by Chip Alexander at Raleigh News & Observer plus national media outlets.) There is no risk in an AHL tryout contract, so I mostly shrug....

Rick DiPietro To Continue Career In The AHL by   Steven Ellis

The legendary saga of Rick DiPietro has continued. He has signed a PTO with AHL’s Charlotte Checkers. Yes, he can’t even get a standard player contract.

Cam Ward out 3-4 weeks, Hurricanes thin at goalie position

Hurricanes say Cam Ward will miss 3-4 weeks

The Carolina Hurricanes got some bad news, Cam Ward will miss three to four weeks, this per the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander.

Hurricanes Week In Review 10/21 - 10/27

There's only two games to recap for the Canes this week and neither of them were anything to write home about, as they were both losses and ones that the Hurricanes played poorly in. To add to that, they also sustained a few injuries to key players, the biggest of which being goaltender Cam Ward, so the morale of the team has crashed back of Earth after a three-game point streak...

Drop Passes

By: Rich Miller (@pensbender) This is pretty straight forward, right?  John Scott is a statue on skates and is basically as one-dimensional as they come in today’s NHL.  In 187 career games, he’s tallied five points.  Five.  It’s counterproductive, yet punch throwers and cheap-shot artists like Scott continue to take roster spots away from guys who can actually play hockey...
