Trevor Carrick got a pair of lengthy plane rides and seven minutes of ice time, but that was the extent of his first callup of the season as the Carolina Hurricanes returned the defenseman to the Charlotte Checkers on Wednesday.
Carrick’s reassignment likely indicates that Trevor van Riemsdyk, who was sent to injured reserve on Saturday when Carrick was called up, will be ready to go tomorrow when the Canes face the Calgary Flames. Van Riemsdyk suffered a concussion in the Canes’ opener against the Wild and has yet to return to the lineup.
The release from the team is below.
CANES REASSIGN TREVOR CARRICK TO CHARLOTTE
Defenseman has two points in three games with Checkers this season
Ron Francis, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reassigned defenseman Trevor Carrick to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).
Carrick, 23, played one game for the Hurricanes during his recall, registering one shot on goal in 7:32 of ice time against Edmonton. The Stouffville, Ont., native has notched two assists in three games with Charlotte this season, and is tied for first among all Checkers skaters with 10 shots on goal. Carrick was selected by Carolina in the fourth round, 115th overall, in the 2012 NHL Draft. He has appeared in three games with the Hurricanes and made his NHL debut on March 15, 2016 against Washington.
