Hurricanes release defenseman Woolley
Woolley participated in training camp on a free-agent tryout basis. The defending Stanley Cup champions need help on the blue line after losing Aaron Ward to free agency and Frantisek Kaberle for much of the season as he comes back from shoulder surgery.
The Hurricanes, 0-4 in the preseason, close their exhibition schedule Sunday against Washington.
