Hurricanes

Canes place Ruutu on IR

Posted September 29, 2013

Ruutu celebrates after his second goal during the Penguins vs. Hurricanes game on November 12, 2011 in Raleigh, NC.

— The Carolina Hurricanes placed forward Tuomo Ruutu on injured reserve Sunday, retroactive to Sept. 21.

Ruutu, who tallied nine points in 17 games last season, missed the final two games of Carolina’s exhibition schedule with a lower-body injury, which is not related to the hip injury he had last season.

For his career, Ruutu has 308 points in 549 games with both the Canes and the Chicago Blackhawks. He recorded a personal best 57 points with the Canes during the 2010-11 season.

    The current roster is making me feel like we are rebuilding (again)

    Hope he makes it back soon! The Canes really need a healthy Ruutu!

    I like Ruutu and hope he returns to the lineup - and soon. I remember his "welcome to the Canes" when he got his face sliced open the first game he played for them and needed a crazy amount of stitches.
