Following their win over the Arizona Coyotes on Sunday, the Carolina Hurricanes have assigned three players – forwards Clark Bishop and Janne Kuokkanen and goalie Scott Darling – to Charlotte.
Bishop heads back to Charlotte after another NHL stint, running his season total to 15 games. The third-year pro, who scored his first NHL goal for Carolina last week, has five points (3g, 2a) and 20 penalty minutes in 12 games with the Checkers this season.
Kuokkanen returns after his first NHL recall of the season, appearing in each of Carolina’s last three contests. The 20-year-old joins a Checkers team that he still leads in scoring with 27 points (11g, 16a) in 26 AHL games this season.
The Hurricanes aren’t in action again until Thursday, while the Checkers host the Utica Comets on Tuesday.
