RALEIGH, N.C. (CP) - The Carolina Hurricanes acquired defenceman Dennis Seidenberg from the Phoenix Coyotes in exchange for centre Kevyn Adams on Monday.
The Hurricanes were looking for help on the blue-line after losing veteran Bret Hedican to injury last week, joining the likes of Frantisek Kaberle and Tim Gleason on the sidelines and leaving Carolina short-handed.
''With some uncertainly concerning when our injured defencemen will be able to return, we needed to make this move now,'' Hurricanes GM Jim Rutherford said in a statement. ''Dennis will be a good fit for us on defence. We thank Kevyn for his good service during his years in Carolina.''
