Hurricanes PR: Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Antti Raanta left last night’s game with a lower-body injury.

He would have been out probably – I don’t know for sure, but he didn’t look too good walking out of here, or limping.”

Golden Knights Brossoit had hip surgery

SportsnetJeff Marek on Vegas Golden Knights goaltender Laurent Brossoit

“You mentioned Vegas there a second ago. Laurent Brossoit, goaltender for the Vegas Golden Knights, has had surgery. We can report it is his hip. While there are fingers crossed, they’re hoping that Brossoit will be available for the start of the season.

We think of Robin Lehner, he underwent shoulder surgery as well. So a lot of people in Vegas crossing their fingers about their netminders in Vegas come next season.”
