The injured are back on the ice. Brandon Sutter, Joni Pitkanen and Frantisek Kaberle all are skating this morning at the RBC Center.
Sutter and Pitkanen have been out since the Oct. 25 game at the New York Islanders -- Sutter with a concussion suffered after a mid-ice hit from Doug Weight, and Pitkanen with a knee injury.
Kaberle suffered a hairline fracture of his foot Oct. 17 during the Canes' game at the L.A. Kings.
The Canes, coming off the 3-2 loss at Washington on Thursday night, are not holding a pregame skate before tonight's game with Ottawa.
Matt Cullen, who has been sidelined with a groin injury the last three games, also is skating this morning.
