Darling has cleared waivers and been assigned to Charlotte (AHL).

Some more early-season struggles and Curtis McElhinney playing lights out as of late led to Darling being waived on Thursday. Darling stopped 25 of 26 shots (.962 SV%) in his only AHL action this season. He will get a lot of playing time with the Checkers to try and get his game back on track and could return to the NHL if McElhinney and/or Petr Mrazek struggle.

Ferland will not play on Friday due to a concussion.

Ferland will miss Friday’s games with a concussion that he likely suffered in Montreal on Tuesday. With Ferland out, the Hurricanes are forced to shuffle their lines and Clark Bishop is up from Charlotte (AHL) to centre the fourth line. It is difficult to pinpoint how long a player will be sidelined with a concussion so consider Ferland day-to-day.

McElhinney will start Friday vs. the Ducks.

McElhinney was outstanding in Montreal, stopping 48 of the 49 shots that he faced to preserve a 2-1 win. McElhinney has won four straight games while allowing just five goals on 150 shots (.967 SV%). His stellar play led to the Hurricanes placing Scott Darling on waivers yesterday, handing the No.1 job to McElhinney for the time being.
