Joni Pitkanen (lower body) missed his 13th game of the year Thursday.
He has been sidelined for half of the Hurricanes' truncated season. Pitkanen last played Mar. 2 when he left a contest against Florida with a lower-body injury after just returning from injury. His status was listed as day-to-day at the time of the ailment and that's currently still all we have to go on right now.
