The Hurricanes have activated Victor Rask from injured reserve.

Rask has missed the first 20 games of the season after undergoing surgery on his hand in the preseason. Rask suffered a freak kitchen accident, slicing two of his fingers with a knife. His activation from IR makes his available for Wednesday’s game, but there’s no indication whether or not he will actually make his season debut tonight or not.
