This marks the first recall of the season for Brown, who has 18 points (10g, 8a) in 46 games for the Checkers this season. Brown, who is serving as team captain for the third consecutive year, ranks third in Checkers history with 310 games played.

The 26-year-old has 28 NHL games under his belt with Carolina, 14 of which came in 2016-17.

The Hurricanes visit Ottawa on Tuesday before back-to-back home games on Friday and Saturday, while the Checkers are back in action with a three-in-three weekend starting Friday in Springfield.
