The Hurricanes are making a swap at forward, assigning Nicolas Roy to Charlotte and recalling Clark Bishop and Phil Di Giuseppe from the Checkers.

After making his NHL debut with Carolina in last season’s finale, Roy was recalled earlier this season and appeared in six games for the Canes. The second-year pro got off to a scorching start for the Checkers, logging seven points (5g, 2a) in six games before his recall and earning the first AHL Player of the Week award of the season.

Bishop returns to the NHL after making his debut earlier this season and logging two games with the Canes. The third-year-pro has recorded five points in nine games for the Checkers.

Di Giuseppe appeared in two games during his stint with the Checkers, going scoreless and racking up 19 penalty minutes. The fifth-year-forward now heads back to Raleigh, where he played in two games before his recent assignment.

With those moves the Checkers now have 12 healthy options at forward plus Greg McKegg, who missed Saturday’s game with an injury but returned to practice Wednesday in a yellow no-contact jersey. Charlotte is back in action Friday in Binghamton to kick off a three-in-three weekend on the road.
