The Carolina Hurricanes placed forward Martin Frk on waivers Monday with the intent of assigning him to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League.
Frk, 23, was claimed on waivers by the Hurricanes on Sunday, Oct. 9. A second-round draft pick of the Detroit Red Wings, Frk skated in two games with the Hurricanes, recording no points and a minus-3 rating.
This roster move precedes one that could be coming in the next few days. Hurricanes defenseman Ryan Murphy is nearing return from a lower-body injury suffered on Oct. 4. He was estimated to miss 3-4 weeks at the time and has been practicing with the team for the last week.
