The Carolina Hurricanes may be looking to add to their forward depth.
"They've made inquiries, and one of them is Josh Ho-Sang," TSN's Pierre LeBrun reported on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading." "Jesse Puljujarvi ... that's another player that I'm told the Hurricanes have kicked tires on."
The New York Islanders selected Ho-Sang 28th overall in 2014, but the forward has struggled to crack their NHL roster. He's appeared in just 53 games since being drafted.
Puljujarvi, who was taken fourth overall in the 2016 draft by the Edmonton Oilers, has also failed to produce with his club, registering 37 points in 139 games. He began this season playing in the Finnish Elite League, where he's put up 12 points in 12 games.
"At some point in time, I think the Hurricanes, who are off to a good start, feel they need to add one more top-nine forward in their lineup," LeBrun added.
The Hurricanes sit atop the Metropolitan Division with a 6-2-0 record.
