The Canes have recalled defenseman Justin Faulk from the Charlotte Checkers (AHL). Faulk was assigned to Charlotte on Oct. 19, and played in three games with the Checkers during the weekend, notching a goal and earning an assist (2 points).
Faulk, 19, made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes in the team’s season opener on Oct. 7 against Tampa Bay. The South St. Paul, Minn., native has played in three of the Hurricanes’ eight games this season, averaging 18:59 of ice time per game.
Faulk's recall again gives the Canes eight defensemen on the roster.
