The Carolina Hurricanes announced today that they reassigned forwards Patrick Dwyer and Jiri Tlusty to Albany. Both players were assigned to the Hurricanes in time for Friday's game against Washington when Erik Cole and Chad LaRose were put on injured reserve.
Sergei Samsonov was close to returning to the lineup and he will most likely be ready to play on Wednesday night when Dallas comes to town, but the Canes will still be short a forward. Will they bring back either Tlusty or Dwyer, or will they give someone else a look?
Jerome Samson leads the River Rats in scoring, (11G 12A, 23 points in 29 games), and probably deserves a shot with the big club. More news to come on Monday.
