Canes place Ruutu on IR
Posted September 29, 2013
Raleigh, N.C. — 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.
