The Carolina Hurricanes placed Ray Whitney and Wade Brookbank on injured reserves today and called up Patrick Dwyer and Joe Jensen from AHL affiliate Albany.
Whitney was scheduled for surgery today to repair a swollen bursa in his left ankle, while Brookbank is out with a leg injury.
In addition, Matt Cullen didn't skate Saturday. He didn't return to the third period of Friday's Buffalo game. Canes coach Peter Laviolette said Cullen "is not feeling well."
