After clearing waivers, the Hurricanes have assigned forwards Marcus Kruger and Josh Jooris to Charlotte.
Jooris, 27, also recorded six points in 30 games during his first season with Carolina. The Ontario native, who has skated in 203 NHL games and recorded 55 points (23g, 32a), was last in the AHL in 2014-15 when he appeared in two games with Adirondack. The year before that Jooris registered 27 points (11g, 16a) in 73 games as a rookie with the Abbotsford Heat.
The duo’s status for tonight’s contest is unknown. The Checkers kick off a six-game home stand at 7:15 against the Springfield Falcons.
