Haydn Fleury is headed back to the NHL as the Hurricanes have recalled the blue liner from Charlotte on an emergency basis.

The third-year pro appeared in two games earlier this month for Carolina – his first NHL action since January – bringing his season total to 14 games, picking up an assist along the way. He joins a Canes team in the midst of a playoff push that will take them to Columbus on Friday before a home contest against Buffalo on Saturday.

Fleury, who served a one-game suspension on Sunday for a hit to the head of a Lehigh Valley player, has five points (2g, 3a) in 23 games this season for the Checkers. Charlotte hosts Rochester for a pair of games this weekend that kicks off a busy final few weeks of the season for the AHL’s top team.
