— Carolina Hurricanes forwards Andreas Nodl and Brett Sutter have been assigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League, team president and general manager Jim Rutherford announced Thursday. 

Nodl, 25, split time last season between Philadelphia and Carolina, totaling eight points and eight penalty minutes in 60 games. He was acquired by the 'Canes on Nov. 29, 2011, and appeared in 48 games with the Hurricanes. Carolina Hurricanes Logo Carolina Hurricanes schedule

    With guys like these being sent down to Charlotte it makes me feel real good about the Canes roster for saturday. I'll have to "educate" myself more at their website and look at the final roster for the opener in Florida. These 2 guys gave some solid minutes last year so the competition for the final roster spots must be pretty close.
