- Right before the kids went trick-or-treating yesterday evening, the Canes announced the recall of Haydn Fleury before the team begins their trip out west.
- Curious what the Canes chose to be for Halloween? Here are a few costumes:
- Also, if you weren’t at the Sharks game, Stormy was a little savage.
- Cat Silverman said there were a lot of good takeaways from Scott Darling’s first night back in net, but there was also a bit of rust. [The Athletic $]
- Pierre LeBrun mentioned on TSN that the Canes have been in talks with the Maple Leafs about William Nylander. [TSN Radio]
- The Canes are mentioned a couple times in Elliotte Friedman’s 31 Thoughts, including the Nylander talks and a wacky stat on Paul Maurice. [Sportsnet]
- Fresh Canes Tweetmail centering on all the losses, potential line shakeups and Victor Rask’s eventual return. [NHL]
Just before the team took off for Arizona on Thursday afternoon, the Hurricanes reassigned Phil Di Giuseppe to the Charlotte Checkers. Di Giuseppe, who cleared waivers on October 18 but remained with the team at the time, has served as the 13th forward for all but two games this season.
Di Giuseppe’s roster spot was effectively filled by Fleury when the defenseman was recalled yesterday, and the Canes head west with an extra defenseman and goalie but no extra forwards.
The release from the team is below.
CANES ASSIGN DI GIUSEPPE TO AHL
Forward has played two NHL games this season
Don Waddell, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has assigned forward Phil Di Giuseppe to Charlotte (AHL).
Di Giuseppe, 25, has skated in two NHL games this season after posting 13 points (5g, 8a) in 49 games with the Hurricanes in 2017-18. The 6’0”, 192-pound forward has appeared in 128 career NHL games since making his debut in 2015, recording 37 points (13g, 24a). Di Giuseppe has registered 89 points (35g, 54a) in 158 AHL games with Charlotte since turning pro in 2014. The Maple, Ont., native was drafted by Carolina in the second round (38th overall) of the 2012 NHL Draft, and played three seasons of college hockey at the University of Michigan.
