Carolina Hurricanes President and General Manager Jim Rutherford announced from Raleigh, N.C. on Sunday that the team had recalled forward Tim Wallace from the team’s American Hockey League (AHL) affiliate club, the Charlotte Checkers.
Rutherford also announced that forward Zac Dalpe had been reassigned to Charlotte.
Wallace has scored nine goals and earned 11 assists (20 points) in 43 games this season with the Checkers.
He has scored three goals and earned eight assists (11 points) in 73 career NHL regular season games with the Pittsburgh Penguins, Tampa Bay Lightning and New York Islanders.
Wallace is in his seventh professional season and playing his first season with Carolina after signing with the Hurricanes as a free agent on July 19, 2012.
In his third year, Dalpe tallied two assists in six games played with the Hurricanes since the beginning of the 2012-2013 season.
When Dalpe returns to Charlotte he will pick up where he left off, having recorded 28 points (13g, 15a) in 38 games played, while sitting tied for third on the Checkers’ scoring list.
Dalpe has played a total of 37 NHL games over the last three seasons in which he has scored nine points (4g, 5a).
