Jiri Tlusty Assigned to Charlotte For Conditioning

The Carolina Hurricanes announced today that forward Jiri Tlusty will be assigned to the Charlotte Checkers for a two week conditioning stint.  Tlusty sat out the first two games of the regular season in Finland and missed most of training camp because he was still recovering from April knee surgery.  The Czech native suffered a torn ACL and MCL in the AHL playoffs last season.

Tlusty is waiver eligible, but will bypass the waiver process because this is a conditioning assignment.  He will most likely play in the Checkers home opener on Friday night.  (more about that soon).

The team still has one extra forward now that Sergei Samsonov looks ready to return, but coach Paul Maurice will make a decison about the lineup after practice tomorrow.   Regardless, it looks like Zac Dalpe and Drayson Bowman both will remain with the Hurricanes, at least for the coming road trip.    The Canes next face the Senators in Ottawa on Thursday night.
