Keep your head up: Hurricanes reportedly hand Raffi Torres a PTO
The Carolina Hurricanes reportedly handed the 34-year-old a PTO, according to former Hurricanes defenseman Aaron Ward.
CAROLINA HURRICANES have extended a PTO offer to UFA Raffi Torres.— Aaron Ward (@NHL_AaronWard) August 30, 2016
It’s something the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander also mentioned on Monday.
Lot of talk about a "big" Canes announcement coming. Not sure about that but could be a PTO. Maybe someone like a Raffi Torres? We'll see.— Chip Alexander (@ice_chip) August 29, 2016
With Bryan Bickell added to the mix during this off-season, the Hurricanes seem interesting in adding some beef. It’s unclear if Torres is really in the sort of condition to make a mark, but Carolina’s going to at least take a look at him.
Beware, pre-season opponents and training camp teammates.
