The Carolina Hurricanes on Saturday announced that forward Zach Boychuk has been reassigned to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. 

Recalled on an emergency basis Friday, Boychuk recorded an assist and recorded 7:53 of ice time during Carolina's 5-3 victory over the San Jose Sharks. 

Boychuk leads the Checkers in goals (9), assists (10) and points (19) and is tied for first in the AHL in power-play goals (7).

The Hurricanes are traveling Sunday to begin a four-game, nine-day road trip. The first of those games is Sunday, when the Hurricanes visit Rogers Arena at 10 p.m. to face the Vancouver Canucks.
