RALEIGH At 3-6-4 and the bottom of the NHL standings, the Carolina Hurricanes were ready to make some changes. Defenseman Jakub Nakladal, who was signed to a one-year deal Oct. 9 just days before the start of the season, was placed on waivers Friday by Carolina after playing in just three games, according to numerous reports. Since Nakladal is on a one-way contract, the Hurricanes are likely hoping another team will claim the 28-year-old right-handed defenseman and his $600,000 salary.The Hurricanes also assigned winger Phil Di Giuseppe to Charlotte of the American Hockey League. Di Giuseppe, 23, played in 11 of the Hurricanes’ 13 games this season but was yet to register a point. He had seven goals and 10 assists in 41 games with Carolina last year. Carolina also freed up another roster spot by moving defenseman Justin Faulk to injured reserve, retroactive to Nov. 7. The move means Faulk would be able to return to the lineup, at earliest, Nov. 15 at home against San Jose.
