The Carolina Hurricanes reportedly handed the 34-year-old a PTO, according to former Hurricanes defenseman Aaron Ward.
It’s something the Raleigh News & Observer’s Chip Alexander also mentioned on Monday.
With Bryan Bickell added to the mix during this off-season, the Hurricanes seem interesting in adding some beef. It’s unclear if Torres is really in the sort of condition to make a mark, but Carolina’s going to at least take a look at him.
Beware, pre-season opponents and training camp teammates.
