Rod Brind'Amour was back on the ice today. Well, sort of.
The Canes' captain, who had arthroscopic surgery on his knee last week, stepped out on the RBC Center ice in sneakers, not skates. He did a little stick-handling, then took a few long shots at the goal on the north end of the arena.
Hey, it's a start. Brind'Amour, who had a wrap around the knee, hopes to return for a preseason game or two.
