Free Agent

The Devils have activated Jiri Tlusty (upper-body) from IR; expected to play on Friday.

Tlusty has been out of the lineup since November 20th, but will return to the lineup tonight vs. the Red Wings. Tlusty is expected to skate on the Devils’ second line with Joseph Blandisi and Kyle Palmieri. He has just three points (1G / 2A) in 16 games this season.

The Hurricanes have traded Jiri Tlusty to the Jets for a 2016 3rd round pick and a 2015 conditional 6th round pick.

Tlusty, 26, is set to become an unrestricted free agent in the offseason. He has played under Jets head coach Paul Maurice both when he was with the Maple Leafs and Hurricanes. Maurice is obviously familiar with Tlusty and like what he brings to the Jets. Winnipeg recently lost Mathieu Perreault for a long period of time, so a winger was needed. Tlusty has 13 goals and 10 assists (27 points) in 52 games this season.

Tlusty (undisclosed) is officially out for this afternoon's game.

Tlusty took part in warmups, including line rushes on the top-line, but he will not be available vs. the Flyers. Obviously his injury did not react as he would have liked in warmups, so the Hurricanes will have Jay Harrison draw in as they go with 11 forwards and seven defensemen.

Tlusty (upper-body) will play on Friday.

Tlusty skated in a no-contact sweater on Thursday, but was back in a regular jersey on his regular line this morning. He will skate with Eric Staal and Alex Semin on the Canes’ top line and will try to keep his nice start going. He has recorded six goals and two assists in 11 games.
