Harrison back for playoffs, Pogge returns from injury

Veteran defenseman Jay Harrison is the latest player to be reassigned by Carolina to the River Rats for their playoff push.
Albany opens its postseason by hosting the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton at 7 on Wednesday night in Game 1 of an East Division semifinal.
The 27-year-old Harrison was recalled by Carolina on March 3 and played in Carolina’s final 20 regular season games.
He posted six (1-5) points in 38 NHL games this season. Harrison has registered 14 points, including 12 assists, and a plus-8 rating in 32 games this season with Albany.
The Hurricanes reassigned six players to Albany on Sunday — forwards Drayson Bowman, Zach Boychuk and Jerome Samson, as well as defensemen Casey Borer, Jamie McBain and Bryan Rodney.
Rookie center Stefan Chaput and rookie goalie Mike Murphy were at Tuesday’s practice, but both won’t be available for Game 1 and likely will be out for much, if not all of the series against Wilkes-Barre.
Justin Pogge is now healthy and will back up starting goalie Justin Peters in the playoffs.
