The Checkers today released Jamie McGinn from his PTO.

The veteran forward appeared in two games for Charlotte, logging 15 penalty minutes.

"He wanted to go home and explore some other opportunities," said head coach Ryan Warsofsky. "He was a good player for us, he practiced hard and was a true pro. He just had to make the decision that was best for himself."

The Checkers return to action with a two-game set in Cleveland beginning Friday.
