RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the 2006 Stanley Cup champion Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that center Dave Gove (GOHV) has been recalled from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. It also was announced that center Keith Aucoin, recalled from Albany on Oct. 15, has been placed on injured reserve with a foot injury.
Gove, 28, has two points (1g, 1a) and a plus-3 plus/minus rating in three games with Albany this season. The Centerville, Mass., native is in his second season with the Hurricanes organization after posting 46 points (20g, 26a) in 65 games with Carolina’s top minor-league affiliate, Lowell, last season. Gove (5’9”, 190 lbs.) made his NHL debut in 2005-06 when he skated with the Hurricanes at Montreal on Jan. 31, and registered his first NHL point with an assist in that game.
The Carolina Hurricanes wrap up a seven-game road swing this weekend with a Friday night game at Buffalo (8 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network) and a Saturday night match up at the New York Islanders (7 p.m., FSN South, Hurricanes Radio Network).
