The Hurricanes are announcing the recall of forward Jakub Petruzalek from Albany. They placed Scott Walker on injured reserve and sent Rod Brind'Amour home to Raleigh with an undisclosed lower body injury.
More from the press release:
Petruzalek, 23, ranks second among River Rats skaters this season in scoring with 34 points (12g, 22a) in 47 games. Drafted by the New York Rangers in the ninth round (266th overall) of the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, Petruzalek has totaled 36 goals and 73 assists (109 points) in 185 career AHL games with Hartford and Albany. The Litvinov, Czech Republic, native was acquired by Carolina in 2006 in exchange for Brad Isbister, and has yet to make his NHL debut.
You knew something had to be wrong with Brind' Amour when he can't win faceoffs.
