The Checkers’ captain is returning as the Hurricanes have assigned Patrick Brown to Charlotte.
The fourth-year pro served as a healthy extra for two games during his stint in Carolina. Brown, in his second season as Charlotte’s captain, has 20 points (6g, 14a) in 44 games this season for Charlotte.
The Checkers return to action tonight for the first of back-to-back contests against the Syracuse Crunch.
Director of Communications Nicholas Niedzielski joined the Checkers in the summer of 2014. A Texas native, he previously worked for the AHL's Texas Stars.
