Only the Buffalo Sabres (five) had more players at Canada's junior evaluation camp this week than the Hurricanes (three).
Brandon Sutter, Chris Terry and Zach Boychuk all attended the four-day camp in Ottawa, although Boychuk was unable to participate in the on-ice activites because of his recent wrist surgery.
The World Juniors are a long way away (in Ottawa this year in December and January), but the Canadian media already assumes Sutter won't be available (because he'd be playing for the Canes), which could open a spot for someone like Terry.
Team USA's camp starts Friday in Lake Placid, N.Y., with Carolina prospect Drayson Bowman scheduled to attend.
UPDATE, 1:40 p.m.: The Canes are in negotiations with Bowman on an entry-level contract, although he has junior eligibility remaining and is expected to spend next season with Spokane (WHL).
