The Carolina Hurricanes today announced that they have recalled Patrick Brown on an emergency basis.
This marks the second NHL recall of the season for the Checkers’ captain, though he didn’t appear in a game during his February call up. Over his five-season career Brown has logged 28 NHL games for the Hurricanes – most recently in the 2016-17 season – and picked up a goal and an assist along the way.
Brown recently capped off a career year for the Checkers, where he set career highs in both goals (19) and points (35), tying for fourth on the team in the former category.
The move comes after both Micheal Ferland and Andrei Svechnikov exited Carolina’s Game 3 win last night with injuries and did not return. The Canes’ series against Washington resumes Thursday for Game 4, while the Checkers begin their first-round series against Providence on Saturday.
