The Hurricanes have made a swap at forward, assigning Patrick Brown to Charlotte and recalling Phil Di Giuseppe from the Checkers.

Brown has been with the Hurricanes since October 31, but has not appeared in a game for Carolina this season, serving as a healthy extra in each contest. With Charlotte this season, the Checkers captain has recorded four points (1g, 3a) and 25 points in nine games.

This marks the first NHL recall of the season for Di Giuseppe. The fourth-year pro currently ranks fourth on the Checkers in scoring with 12 points in 14 games, including eight in his last seven. Di Giuseppe has spent much of the last two seasons in the NHL, logging 24 points (8g, 16a) in 77 career contests with Carolina.

The Hurricanes have also recalled Lee Stempniak from his conditioning stint with the Checkers. The veteran forward appeared in one game with Charlotte but left Friday’s game early in the first period and did not return.

The Checkers’ longest road trip of the year is rolling into its final week, with the team taking on Springfield in a morning game on Wednesday.
