With leading scorer Jeff Skinner out with what now is being called an undisclosed injury, the Canes have recalled forward Drayson Bowman from the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).
To make room for Bowman on the 23-man roster, goaltender Brian Boucher has been placed on injured reserve.
Bowman is being recalled on an emergency basis. Skinner did not play Friday against the Winnipeg Jets and it was said he had flu-like symptoms.
Bowman, 22, has eight goals and six assists in 23 games with the Checkers this season, and also has skated in two NHL games this year with the Hurricanes.
