Hurricanes not rushing Mrazek

Kurt Dusterberg of NHL.com: Carolina Hurricanes goaltender Petr Mrazek was on the ice for around 20 minutes again yesterday. Coach Rod Brind’Amour said that they won’t be rushing him back.

“When he’s 100 percent we will get him back in there,” he said. “But until then you can’t. There’s no point. … We can’t rush a goalie back. He can’t play with an injury. There’s a difference with a goalie, I think. can kind of baby it a little, hide it. A goalie can’t. He has to be 100 percent in order to feel good about making his moves and exploding.”
