Canes' Tuomo Ruutu doubtful for Friday's game against Kings

Carolina winger Tuomo Ruutu left practice early Thursday after skating for only a few minutes and is doubtful for Friday's game against the Los Angeles Kings.

The injury is related to a groin injury that kept him out of most of training camp.

"Right now, he's day to day," Canes coach Peter Laviolette told the Raleigh News and Observer after Thursday's workout at the Kings' practice rink. "He's probably doubtful (for the Kings' game.)"
