Canes reassign Gragnani, recall Jordan

Posted February 27, 2013

The Carolina Hurricanes reassigned defenseman Marc-Andre Gragnani to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL) and recalled defenseman Michal Jordan, President and General Manager Jim Rutherford announced Wednesday.

Gragnani, 25, was recalled from Charlotte on Monday and made his Hurricanes debut on Tuesday at Washington. The Montreal native ranks tied for second among Checkers defensemen in scoring this season with 21 points (1g, 20a). Signed by the Hurricanes as a free agent on July 11, 2012, Gragnani (6’2”, 201 lbs.) has played 74 career NHL games with Buffalo, Vancouver and Carolina, totaling 18 points (3g, 15a).

This marks the second NHL recall for Jordan, 22, who is in his third professional season. The Zlin, Czech Republic native appeared in five games with Carolina from Feb. 14-24, averaging 10:41 of ice time per game. Jordan has scored six goals and earned nine assists (15 points) in 48 games this season with Charlotte this season, and represented the Checkers in the 2013 AHL All-Star Game in Providence, RI on Jan. 28. Drafted by Carolina in the fourth round, 105th overall, of the 2008 NHL Entry Draft, Jordan (6’1”, 195 lbs.) has notched 14 goals and earned 41 assists in 191 career AHL regular-season games with the Checkers.

The Carolina Hurricanes return to PNC Arena on Thursday, Feb. 28, to host the Pittsburgh Penguins (7 p.m., FOX Sports Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network) in the first game of a two-game home stand.
