At the NHL’s trade deadline, the Hurricanes acquired Greg McKegg from Pittsburgh in exchange for Josh Jooris. The forward will report to Charlotte
Jooris cleared waivers and joined the Checkers earlier this month, notching three helpers in five games with the team.
Additionally, Carolina has assigned forward Lucas Wallmark and defenseman Haydn Fleury to the Checkers on paper. By sending them to Charlotte prior to the 3 p.m. deadline, the two skaters are now eligible to join the Checkers at any point for the remainder of the regular season and postseason.
