After clearing waivers, Brian Gibbons has been assigned to Charlotte.

The veteran forward has logged 11 games with Carolina this season, filling in for an injured Jordan Martinook. Gibbons, an alternate captain for the Checkers, has racked up eight points (3g, 5a) in six AHL games this season. In his last outing with Charlotte on Oct. 19, the 31-year-old notched a season-best four points.

Coming off a big shutout win last night, the Checkers are once again facing off against the Hershey Bears tonight as they work their way through a five-game road trip.
