— The Carolina Hurricanes on Friday recalled center Jeremy Welsh from the Charlotte Checkers and reassigned defenseman Ryan Murphy and forward Tim Wallace, president and general manager Jim Rutherford announced. 

Welsh, 24, is in his first full professional system and has 13 points in 39 games with the Checkers. Welsh made his NHL debut in Carolina's final regular season game a year ago, skating 16:32 and totaled four penalty minutes.

Murphy, 19, returns to his junior club, the Kitchener Rangers of the Ontario Hockey League, after taking part in his second NHL training camp since being drafted in the first round by the Hurricanes in 2011. Murphy has scored 47 goals and earned 149 assists in 207 career OHL regular-season games with Kitchener. Earlier this season, he played for Team Canada at the International Ice Hockey Federation World Junior Championships in Russia.

Wallace, 28, returns to Charlotte where he scored seven goals and earned nine assists in 37 games prior to the start of the Hurricanes' training camp. Wallace is in his seventh professional season after spending time with Pittsburgh, Tampa Bay and the New York Islanders. Carolina signed Wallace as a free agent on July 19, 2012. 

On Thursday, Carolina assigned forwards Andreas Nodl and Brett Sutter to the Checkers.

The Hurricanes open the 2013 regular season on Jan. 19 at Florida, and play their home opener on Jan. 22 against the Tampa Bay Lightning.
