As training camp approaches, the Hurricanes added two more members to their roster on Monday. Carolina signed forwards Kieffer Bellows and Jayden Halbgewachs to PTOs, according to a team release.

Bellows, who was a first round pick of the New York Islanders in the 2016 draft, appeared in 27 games during the 2022-2023 campaign, with 26 of those contests coming with the Philadelphia Flyers. The 25-year old netted three goals in that span, averaging 9:46 of ice time per game.

For his career, Bellows has appeared in 95 games over four seasons, recording 14 goals and 14 assists.

Joining the former Islander on a PTO is Jayden Halbgewachs, a 26-year old forward who has played in just three contests in the NHL. An undrafted free agent in 2018, Halbgewachs saw action in three games with San Jose in 2022, tallying one goal in seven shot attempts.

With a split squad doubleheader awaiting on Sept. 29th when they travel to face-off against the Florida Panthers and Tampa Bay Lightning, this appears to be a sign of ensuring they meet the roster requirements to compete in the two contests.

Bellows and Halbgewachs are the fifth and sixth training camp invitees via professional tryout, joining Nathan Beaulieu, Brendan Perlini, Nick Shore, and Corey Conacher.
