from Chip Alexander of the News & Observer,
Canes forward Tuomo Ruutu said today that he has called Darcy Tucker of the Colorado Avalanche and apologized for the hit from behind that left Tucker with a concussion.
Ruutu was suspended for three games by the NHL for the hit in Friday’s game in Denver.
“It was a bad hit by me,” Ruutu said. “I wasn’t really worried about the suspension. I was worried about the guy.
“It looked pretty bad. It just happened. I think he’s doing better. I’m so sorry about what happened but everything happened so quickly.
“I wish I could get it back but I can’t.”
