The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled defenseman Ryan Murphy from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

The Carolina Hurricanes on Tuesday recalled defenseman Ryan Murphy from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.

The Hurricanes had sent Murphy to Charlotte on Monday.

Murphy, Carolina's first-round pick (No. 12) in the 2011 NHL Draft, is expected to practice with the team on Wednesday. The Hurricanes open their regular season Friday night at home against the Detroit Red Wings.

Murphy is entering his first full professional season after four years with the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League. He was scoreless in four games with Carolina last season.

Quote of the Day

It's really exciting. I'm pretty sure that when I play my first game I'm going to be emotional. To be back on the ice playing a game, being in game situations, with all the routines and rituals I do before games and during the game, I feel like I'm going to be emotional. I'm going to be really happy.
