The Carolina Hurricanes have claimed Adam Hall on waivers from the Tampa Bay Lightning, the team announced Saturday morning.
Hall had four assists in 20 games for the Lightning this season. When he packs up his gear, he won't have to take it very far -- the Hurricanes are in Tampa, Fla., and play the Lightning on Saturday night so Hall could make his Carolina debut against his former club.
"Adam gives us an added penalty killer," Carolina general manager Jim Rutherford said on Twitter (@HurricanesGM). "He plays the wing, but can also play center and is a very good face-off man."
