from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,
Tomas Kaberle slipped into a Carolina Hurricanes sweater for the first time Thursday and skated with some of his new teammates at Raleigh Center Ice.
In his many years with the Toronto Maple Leafs, the defenseman wore No. 15. Tuomo Ruutu has that uniform number with the Canes, but Kaberle said he doesn’t mind simply reversing the numbers and wearing No. 51.
“Something new,” Kaberle said, smiling. “It’s a new team, a new number and a fresh start for me.”...
“It was an adjustment (in Boston),” Kaberle conceded. “I played different minutes than I had played in Toronto. I said I don’t care, I’ll do my best and see what happens.
“I will prepare for this season like always. I’m not at the end of my career. I just want to play my hockey. I just want to play my hockey style and that’s why they signed me here.”
