‘Canes Ruutu To Make Preseason Debut Tonight

Ruutu_2013Oft-injured winger Tuomo Ruutu will make his preseason debut tonight for the ‘Canes, according to the Raleigh News & Observer.

Ruutu, 30, didn’t play in either of the Hurricanes’ first two exhibition contests — a 5-4 loss to Columbus and a 5-2 loss to Buffalo — but will rejoin his mates for tonight’s game against Montreal, the first of back-to-back games against the Habs.

It will mark a significant comeback for Ruutu, who had his 2013 campaign book-ended by a pair of hip surgeries.
