The Carolina Hurricanes got a much needed boost in their lineup for last night’s game against the Philadelphia Flyers, as they really needed some help.
The Hurricanes had lost five straight games, all in regulation going into last night’s tilt. The ‘Canes activated their veteran forward Radek Dvorak from the injured reserve list for last night’s home game against Philly, the club announced via their team website.
The 36 year old Dvorak, signed a one-year deal with the Hurricanes after attending their training camp on a PTO, and he has responded with two goals in 11 games, and he is averaging over 12 minutes a night.
He is an important addition to a team that’s without a number of key players due to injuries that have hurt the team: Cam Ward, Jeff Skinner and Anton Khudobin, most notably, are all injured.
In his first game back however, it was a quiet one for him, and the Flyers won 2-1 overtime win, sending the ‘Canes to their sixth straight loss.
