The Carolina Hurricanes announced on Wednesday that they have recalled rookie forward Elias Lindholm from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. 

Lindholm, 19, was reassigned to the Swedish team recently for the 2014 International Ice Hockey Federation's World Junior Championship. He scored two goals and tallied seven assists in six games during the tournament, helping Sweden win a silver medal.

Lindholm has tallied seven points (3 goals, 4 assists) in 21 games with the Hurricanes in 2013-14. 

To make room for Lindholm's return to Raleigh, the Hurricanes also announced that they have reassigned Aaron Palushaj to Charlotte. 

Carolina returns to the ice Thursday evening at 7 p.m. for a matchup with the Toronto Maple Leafs.

    While he's very skilled, he seems to be too fragile for the NHL until he bulks up. Every time he takes a hit he misses at least a week. Not all hope is lost though. Skinner was the same earlier in his career and he's doing well now.

    Lindholm isn't the only one on the Canes roster who is fragile these days. Cam Ward is injured a lot these days and on at least one occasion when he went down, there was no apparent reason.
