Injury: Tuomo Ruutu skating with the #Canes, not in a non-contact j... 5 years ago

Ruutu (hip) has not played a game this season but he is working towards a return. He likely won't be back for at least another week but when he returns he will certainly help the Hurricanes up front. It is not a question of talent for Ruutu it is about staying healthy. Ruutu has missed 106 games over the last five seasons due to injury but when healthy he had 34 points in 72 games last season.
