Ahead of their contest against Toronto, the Checkers have recalled Cedric Lacroix from the ECHL.

Lacroix, who signed an AHL deal with the Checkers over the summer, has 14 points in 20 games with the Greenville Swamp Rabbits. He now returns to Charlotte where he has appeared in nine games and logged 34 penalty minutes.

The Checkers are in the midst of an extended home stand and host the Marlies Friday and Saturday.
