The clubs General Manager Brad Robson announced that forward Zach Goberis and defenceman Thomas Lenchyshyn have both been sent down.
Goberis, a 1997-born player from Colorado, appeared in two games in the regular season but seemed to have to odds stacked against him on a team that is very deep on defense. While, Lenchyshyn only drew into the line up once and also was the odd man out on defense with the acquisition of Kord Pankewicz from the Wheaties which put their total to ten on the back-end.
The Hurricanes currently sit with 28 players on their roster (17 forwards, 9 defence, and 2 goalies).
