Julien Gauthier has been assigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL.

Patrick Brown, Andrew Miller, Brenden Kichton, Roland McKeown, Dennis Robertson and Philip Samuelsson were also among Carolina's roster cuts on Sunday. They are all en route to the minors, which leaves the Hurricanes with 33 players at camp.

Valentin Zykov chipped in with a pair of assists in a 4-1 win Saturday.

The Kings second round pick in 2013, Zykov was dealt to the Hurricanes as part of the Kris Versteeg trade in 2016 and made his NHL debut in March. He had a goal in his NHL debut but suffered an upper body injury in his second game and did not play again in The Show. He will be looking to crack the lineup this season.

Gregory Hofmann was returned to Switzerland by Carolina Saturday.

The center was drafted 103rd by Carolina in 2011 but has been playing in Switzerland since then. He had 12 goals and 28 points with Lugano of the Swiss League last season and that's where he will play again this season.

Trevor Carrick had a goal and an assist in Carolina’s 4-1 win over the Washington Capitals.

The 23-year-old has played in two career games in the NHL, but he spent all of last year in the minors. Carrick had four goals and 12 assists in 57 games with the Charlotte Checkers in 2016-17. The Hurricanes are deep on the blue line, so Carrick is a long shot to make the team out of training camp.

Nicolas Roy (concussion) was back at practice on Friday.

Roy suffered a concussion during the prospect's tournament and hasn't been able to shed the no-contact jersey until now. Roy is expected to a look in a preseason game before the end of camp. He's expected to play in the minors this season.

The Carolina Hurricanes are trying to find a roster spot for Martin Necas.

Necas was Carolina's first round pick, 12th overall, in last June's NHL Entry Draft. The 18-year-old is a natural center, but he's also been used as a right winger in camp. On Friday, he was skating on the right side of Derek Ryan and Jeff Skinner. Necas had seven goals and 15 points in 41 games in the Czech League last season. It sounds like the Hurricanes are serious about keeping him around.

Lee Stempniak's previously undisclosed problem is soreness in his hip and back.

Stempniak had an MRI on Thursday and they're just waiting on the results. Consider him day-to-day until more information is revealed.
Sep 22 - 1:06 PM

Scott Darling (shoulder) took part in Friday's practice.

Darling was "a little banged up" after taking a shot off his shoulder, but it seems he's fine now. Perhaps he'll play in Saturday's preseason contest as previously suggested.
Sep 22 - 1:04 PM

Scott Darling, who has been described as "a little banged up," is projected to practice on Friday.

If all goes according to plan then Darling could play in part of Saturday's preseason contest against Washington. Given that we're still in training camp it wouldn't be too big of an issue if he ends up taking longer than that to recover as there's still a fair amount of time before the Hurricanes' season opener.

Haydn Fleury got into a fight with Tampa Bay's Anthony Cirelli during Wednesday's game in response to Cirelli's hit on Derek Ryan.

Fleury doesn't typically drop the gloves, but his willingness to step up in defense of his teammate was praised. "That’s a kid who looks hungry and looks like he wants to be in the National Hockey League," Hurricanes coach Bill Peters said. Fleury had seven goals and 26 points in 69 WHL games.
Sep 21 - 9:51 AM

Sebastian Aho scored a goal in Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Lightning.

Aho found the back of the net with less than two minutes remaining to cut the opposition's lead to 4-3, but that's as close as they'd come to tying it up. Aho is coming off a fine rookie season that saw him score 24 goals and 49 points in 82 games. The 20-year-old should be able to improve those numbers this season.
Sep 20 - 9:35 PM

Erik Cole agreed to a ceremonial contract with Carolina and then announced his retirement from playing hockey.

The Hurricanes then named him as team ambassador. Cole produced 265 goals and 267 assists in 892 career games with the Hurricanes, Oilers, Canadiens, Stars and Red Wings. He racked up 557 of those contests with Carolina.
Sep 20 - 6:08 PM

Lee Stempniak (undisclosed) is a bit dinged up, according to coach Bill Peters.

Carolina doesn't want to rush him or banged up netminder Scott Darling back to action. Consider Stempniak as day-to-day for the time being.
Sep 20 - 1:00 PM

Scott Darling is "just a little banged up" at the moment, according to coach Bill Peters.

However, it doesn't sound like a serious issue. Peters hopes to have Darling cleared and ready to play this weekend in preseason competition.
