Forward Sergei Samsonov sat out another practice today and will not play Thursday against the Predators, coach Paul Maurice said.
With forwards Erik Cole and Chad LaRose still being evaluated for their injuries and still off the ice, the Canes will recall forwards Zach Boychuk and Jiri Tlusty from Albany (AHL). Both played Saturday in New York against the Rangers.
Maurice said the callups would be at practice tomorrow, adding, "I'm certainly comfortable with the two we had."
Boychuk was effective in his 10 minutes of ice time and Tlusty had an assist on Tom Kostopoulos' goal as the Canes topped the Rangers 2-1.
On the status of Cole (upper-body injury) and LaRose (lower-body), Maurice said LaRose could be back on the ice next week but that Cole's return is uncertain.
"How long it takes after we push him for a while, we'll see," Maurice said of LaRose. "Erik, we're still running tests and getting results back to make sure there's healing there, and there nees to be healing before he gets back on the ice."
