RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled forward Patrick Dwyer from Albany of the American Hockey League (AHL). Dwyer, 25, is being recalled on an emergency basis after Hurricanes right wing Patrick Eaves sustained an upper-body injury in Carolina’s game on Sunday against Nashville.
This mark’s Dwyer’s second NHL recall of the season. The Spokane, WA, native was recalled from Albany on Nov. 2, and made his NHL debut that day against the Toronto Maple Leafs. Dwyer (5’11”, 175 lbs.) averaged 9:08 of ice time per game, including 2:54 of shorthanded ice time per game, while playing in seven games during his first playing stint in the NHL. He has totaled three goals and two assists (5 points) in 11 games for Albany this season.
