With the start of training camp less than a month away, the Carolina Hurricanes have announced two more additions via Professional Tryouts.

Forwards Cory Conacher and Brendan Perlini will vie for roster spots in Raleigh, according to a team release on Monday night.

Conacher, 33, went undrafted out of Canisius College in 2011 and has appeared in 193 games with four different teams throughout his career. He has spent parts of eight seasons in the NHL, most recently with Tampa Bay during the 2019-2020 campaign.

The Burlington, Ontario native has tallied 28 goals and 47 assists in his career.

Joining Conacher is another veteran in Brendan Perlini, who was selected by Arizona with the 12th overall pick of the 2014 draft.

Perlini spent his first three seasons in the NHL with the Coyotes, beginning in 2016, before seeing time in Chicago, Detroit, and Edmonton.

His last NHL action came during the 2021-2022 season with the Oilers, where he appeared in 23 contests and accrued six points.

For his career, the 27-year old has recorded 50 goals and 31 assists across 262 games.

Conacher and Perlini, who both had signed deals with the Chicago Wolves according to TSN, join fellow veteran Nathan Beaulieu on Professional Tryouts heading into camp.
