Left wing scored the overtime game-winner Friday night for River Rats
RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled left wing Andrew Ladd from his conditioning stint with the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Ladd will be available for Tuesday’s game against the Toronto Maple Leafs at the RBC Center.
Ladd, 21, had one goal and four penalty minutes in two games with Albany. His goal came in overtime on Friday night, as the River Rats topped the Lowell Devils in overtime. Ladd has missed 16 games on the NHL level this season due to an ankle injury suffered in the third period of the Hurricanes’ third game of the season on Oct. 6 at Washington. The Maple Ridge, B.C., native has totaled one goal and one assist (2 points) in 15 NHL games with the Hurricanes this season. Ladd (6’2”, 201 lbs.) was drafted by the Hurricanes in the first round, fourth overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft, and has scored 18 goals, earned 16 assists (34 points) and accumulated 59 penalty minutes in 108 regular-season games with Carolina.
