Patrick Dwyer Recalled, Eric Staal Moved To IR

With injuries mounting, the Carolina Hurricanes have recalled forward Patrick Dwyer, the captain of the Albany River Rats, to fill the hole. To make roster space for Dwyer, the Canes moved injured center Eric Staal to injured reserve.

Dwyer, who played 13 games with the Canes last season, is second in scoring with the Rats, registering a team-high nine goals and 15 points. Only Jerome Samson — who Rutherford had said would also be considered for the promotion — has more points (18) in Albany. He scored one goal with Carolina last season.

Here is the release from the team:

HURRICANES RECALL PATRICK DWYER FROM ALBANY
