If there's going to be any conversation about the Canes' younger forwards in training camp, Jiri Tlusty said he wants to be included.
"It looks like I've been in the league for a long time, but I'm 23 years old," Tlusty said.
Nor does Tlusty feel like he should be lumped in with the Canes' forwards who may have already secured a roster spot and can go through camp feeling, well, secure.
"I don't go out there like I deserve a spot," he said. "I am giving everything I have."
