Hainsey is ill and will be a game-time decision tonight.
Hainsey did not take part in the Hurricanes morning skate because of the illness and will be replaced by Jay Harrison if he can't go tonight vs. the Maple Leafs. Hainsey averages 21:20 TOI and has 10 points (3G / 7A) with a minus-9 rating in 43 games.
The Canes, looking to fill the void left by injured defenseman Joni Pitkanen, signed free-agent defenseman Ron Hainsey on Thursday.
General manager Jim Rutherford said Hainsey would receive a one-year, $2 million contract.
He played 47 games for the Jets last season, with no goals and 13 assists. He led Winnipeg in blocked shots (123).
#winnipegjets had D Ron Hainsey (lower body) back on the ice but he might not be ready to go Tues vs #bruins
Hainsey has only played in five games this season and holds no fantasy hockey value at the moment. He may get some valuable minutes and/or some power play time but he hasn't proven himself healthy all season.
