RALEIGH, N.C. — Carolina Hurricanes forward Jack Drury has resumed skating after being knocked from Game 4 against the New York Islanders following a jarring hit into the boards, coach Rod Brind’Amour said Wednesday.

Drury missed the Hurricanes’ Game 5 loss to the Islanders on Tuesday after the hit by Ryan Pulock two days earlier, although Brind’Amour said Drury doesn’t have a concussion.

Brind’Amour said Drury’s return to the ice is “a good sign and he feels good, so we’ll see where that goes.”

Drury had been elevated to a larger role because of injuries, including forward Andrei Svechnikov being lost to a season-ending knee injury in March as well as another top-line performer, Teuvo Teravainen, being knocked from Game 2 with a broken hand.

The Hurricanes lead the Islanders 3-2 in their best-of-seven first-round series entering Friday’s Game 6 on the road.
