The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed right winger Troy Bodie on waivers from the Anaheim Ducks.
In announcing the move Tuesday, general manager Jim Rutherford called Bodie "a gritty player who gets up and down the ice well" and says he will make the forwards more physical. He is expected to add depth to Carolina's corps of forwards.
The 25-year-old Bodie had one assist and seven penalty minutes in nine games with the Ducks this season before he was waived Monday. All three of his NHL seasons were with Anaheim.
