Since returning to the AHL, he has scored two goals in five games.
Di Giuseppe started the season with the Hurricanes and skated in two games with the team before being put on waivers and, eventually, getting assigned to the Checkers. In four total games played between the NHL and AHL this season, he has recorded zero points and has racked up 23 penalty minutes.
