Dwyer, Tlusty recalled by Carolina

The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled forwards Pat Dwyer and Jiri Tlusty. This will be the second stint with the Hurricanes for Dwyer, Albany’s team captain. The right wing played in six games in his first recall with Carolina (Nov. 19-30), where he averaged 10:53 of ice time. Through 22 games with the Rats this season, Dwyer shares the team goal-scoring lead (11) with right wing Jerome Samson and is tied for second in scoring with 18 (11-7) points with center Stefan Chaput. This is the first assignment to Carolina for Tlusty, a fourth-year left wing who was acquired by Carolina in a trade with the Toronto Maple Leafs on Dec. 3, and made his Rats debut on Sunday against Wilkes-Barre/Scranton. The Hurricanes will place forwards Erik Cole (upper body injury, expected to miss two to three weeks) and Chad LaRose (lower body, three to four weeks) on injured reserve. In a pair of separate moves, the River Rats recalled forwards Harrison Reed and Matthew Pistilli from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL.
