The Hurricanes were aware of Nate Hagemo's latest arrest when they invited the one-time prospect to their prospect conditioning camp.
"We were made aware of it and told what happened," Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford said.
Hagemo, a second-round pick in 2005, hasn't played organized hockey in almost three years because of a shoulder injury that is just now starting to recover. The Hurricanes agreed to invite him to this week's camp at his agent's request.

Hagemo was arrested June 29 in Minnesota on suspicion of harrasment and violating a restraining order. He was already on probation and may also face felony drug charges stemming from an arrest in January.
