Jussi Jokinen is staying with the Carolina Hurricanes.
Jokinen was placed on NHL waivers on Tuesday but cleared waivers at noon on Wednesday. The veteran forward is expected to join the team for the three-game trip to Canada.
Forward Tim Wallace, also placed on waivers Tuesday, also cleared and was reassigned by the Canes to the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).
Canes coach Kirk Muller said after today's practice that forward Chad LaRose, who turned 31 Wednesday, has the flu and would not be with the team for the first stop on the trip -- Thursday at Toronto against the Maple Leafs.
Muller said injured defensemen Justin Faulk and Bobby Sanguinetti, and goalie Dan Ellis, would accompany the team on the trip. Faulk (knee sprain) has not been able to resume skating, Muller said.
