Canes general manager Jim Rutherford said Friday that Swedish forward Elias Lindholm suffered a minor shoulder injury Thursday night during a development camp drill.

"He'll be OK. It's not serious," Rutherford said. "We will hold him off (ice) the rest of the week, but he should be able to return to his normal workouts in a week to 10 days. We're being cautious with it."

Lindholm, the Canes' first-round draft pick this year, was knocked into the boards at PNC Arena and immediately left the ice for treatment. He later was taken to a doctor for further evaluation.

Rutherford said Lindholm plans to compete for the Canes in the Traverse City (Mich.) prospect tournament that is hosted by the Detroit Red Wings and begins Sept. 5.

Rutherford said he liked the pace and intensity of Thursday's on-ice workouts at PNC Arena.

"That's what I'd like to see from the start of camp next year," he said. "Get more movement, a little more tempo. This year we built up to that."
