After making his NHL debut earlier this week, Jake Bean has been assigned to Charlotte.
The rookie blue liner appeared in two games for the Canes during his first NHL recall. With 11 points (3g, 8a) in 21 AHL games, Bean is tied for second among Charlotte defensemen in scoring and ranks fifth among all AHL rookie blue liners.
The 20-year-old, who has recorded a point in four straight games for the Checkers, will join the team for tonight’s road contest in Hartford.
Director of Communications Nicholas Niedzielski joined the Checkers in the summer of 2014. A Texas native, he previously worked for the AHL's Texas Stars.
