Just ahead of Charlotte’s Wednesday night matchup in Syracuse, the Hurricanes have recalled Brian Gibbons.

The veteran forward returns to Carolina where he has logged 11 games this season. The Hurricanes host the Sharks tomorrow night and then the Wild on Saturday.

One of the Checkers’ alternate captains, Gibbons is tied for second on the team in scoring with 11 points (3g, 8a) in 12 AHL games this season.

After tonight’s tilt in Syracuse the Checkers head to Rochester for a pair of road games this weekend.
