LaRose No Longer In Canes Plans

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

via Chip Alexander of Canes Now at the News & Observer,

Canes general manager Jim Rutherford said Wednesday night that it now appears unlikely free agent forward Chad LaRose would be signed to a new contract.

“It’s not going to happen,” Rutherford said Wednesday night. “I informed (Morris) that we had another deal we were working on, that I was giving him a courtesy call. He said he would run everything by Chad and call back in an hour. I waited but they never called back.

“Obviously they have a deal somewhere else. So we’re working on signing another free agent. It’s time to move on.”

thanks to a KK reader for the pointer…
