According to Carolina Hurricanes Senior Director of Communications, Mike Sundheim, rookie forward Sergey Tolchinsky has been assigned to the Charlotte Checkers.
Sault St. Marie's exit from the OHL playoffs on Tuesday night cleared the way for Tolchinsky to join the Checkers. The 19-year-old 5-foot-9-inch left-shot winger finished his OHL season 10th in the league in scoring with 91 points (31 goals, 60 assists).
