Defenseman Joni Pitkanen is set to undergo a minor knee procedure today to repair torn cartilage in his knee. The injury will sideline him for approximately 2-4 weeks.
According to Hurricanes’ Head Trainer and Strength and Conditoining Coach Pete Friesen, Pitkanen suffered the injury while doing leg presses in Finland over the summer. He attempted to skate through the discomfort at the RecZone earlier this week, but a later MRI showed a small tear.
