The Carolina Hurricanes just announced the recall of forward Zack Boychuk from the Albany River Rats. Boychuk will take Jiri Tlusty's spot, who was reassigned to Albany yesterday.
Chip Alexander was reporting from the morning skate in Buffalo that Tuomo Ruutu was skating with Brandon Sutter and Patrick Dwyer, but apparently, Ruutu is still not ready to go.
The team's 1st round draft pick in 2008 has 12 goals and 15 assists for the Rats so far this season. He has a single assist in nine previous games for the Hurricanes.
I'll have the game preview up early this afternoon.
