Chris Terry recalled to Carolina Hurricanes

Per team release...

RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled forward Chris Terry from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) on an emergency basis.

Terry, 24, has played in eight NHL games with Carolina this season, averaging 11:38 of ice time per game. The Brampton, Ont., native ranks second among Charlotte skaters this season in goals (28), power-play goals (14) and points (66) and first in assists (38) in 63 games. Terry (5’10”, 195 lbs.)  has scored one goal in 11 career NHL games with Carolina since being drafted by the Hurricanes in the fifth round, 132nd overall, in the 2007 NHL Entry Draft.


This is Terry's second recall in the past two weeks. It's not immediately clear how long the Checkers will be without his services.

With forwards Greg Nemisz and Brendan Woods out for the season and Aaron Palushaj (upper body injury) ruled out through this coming weekend, it's possible that the newly signed Phil Di Guiseppe could see action.

Di Guiseppe, a second-round pick in 2012, is yet to play in a game for the Checkers since signing his contract last Wednesday.

Terry recorded 20 points (10g, 10a) in the month of March (16 games), which would have been a team-record had Zach Boychuk not also caught fire and recorded 22 points  (9g, 13a).
