The Canes on Saturday planned to reassign nine players from their training camp roster to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.
General manager Ron Francis also announced the team has added forward Chad LaRose to the training camp roster on a professional tryout. LaRose, a former Canes forward, did not play hockey last season.
Defensemen Trevor Carrick, Dennis Robertson and Keegan Lowe and goaltender Daniel Altshuller were assigned directly to the Checkers. Forwards Ben Holmstrom, Justin Shugg, Greg Nemisz and Jared Staal will be assigned to Charlotte pending waivers.
Forward Kyle Hagel, who has an AHL contract with Charlotte, has also been released from the Hurricanes’ camp.
