The veteran forward, who was named one of Charlotte’s alternate captain prior to the start of the season, has put up four points (1g, 3a) in four games for the Checkers this season, including a power-play goal in Saturday night’s win over Bridgeport.

Signed as a free ageny over the summer, the 31-year-old Gibbons is in his ninth pro season has logged over 300 AHL games over his career, as well as 189 NHL games with Pittsburgh, Columbus, New Jersey, Anaheim and Ottawa with 67 career NHL points (35g, 42a).

The move comes after the Canes assigned Julien Gauthier to Charlotte late last night.
