Hurricanes recall Wallace, Blanchard; sign Brendan Woods

Posted April 10, 2013

— Charlotte Checkers forward Nicolas Blanchard will make his NHL debut Thursday after being recalled Wednesday on an emergency basis, the Carolina Hurricanes announced.

Blanchard, 25, has nine points in 61 games with the Checkers in 2012-13. Blanchard was selected in the sixth round of the 2005 NHL Draft and is an alternate captain in Charlotte. 

Tim Wallace was also recalled from Charlotte Wednesday. The forward has a goal in 21 games with the Hurricanes on the year.

The Hurricanes also announced on Wednesday that forward Zac Dalpe has been reassigned to Charlotte and 2012 draft pick Brendan Woods has been signed to a three-year, entry-level contract. 

Woods tallied 12 points in 41 games for the University of Wisconsin Badgers in 2012-13 after being selected in the fifth round of the 2012 NHL Draft. 

At the NHL level, Woods will receive $600,000 in 2013-14, $650,000 in 2014-15 and $700,000 in 2015-16. At the AHL level, he will be paid $65,000 in all three years. 

"Brendan is a big, physical forward who skates well," Ron Francis, vice president of hockey operations for the Hurricanes, said in a statement. "He has a good knowledge of the game and did a good job in the faceoff circle during his second year at Wisconsin."

    The Canes are in survival mode just to get through the rest of the season with maybe trying to win a game. 13 losses in a row is enough embarrassment to say the least.

    It is Dalpe not Dalphe. Not sure who Brian Murphy is. If you are referring to Ryan Murphy he is playing Junior Hockey for Kitchener. They were only allowed to call him us last time as an emergency call-up and he had to go back to Kitchener. Ryan Murphy is not the answer this team needs right now. He is a small puck moving defenseman. They need some shutdown D men and goal tending. Goal tending is nothing short of horrible right now. No team could win with the netminders the Canes have.

    I hate to see any North Carolina Pro team not win. I have always pulled for the Bobcats, Panthers, and the Canes. All three teams need solid players. Spending money is the name of the game to get the best personnel. It isn't happening at the present time. Still wishing the best for the Canes, and all fans.

    WoW... Zac Dalphe sent down WHY? Why is Brian Murphy not up with the team... Where is Tim Wallace?? The following guys need to be put on waviers RUUTU, coughs up the puck all of the time... McBain, just not tough enough. Chad LaRose, just going through the motions... Jim Rutherford has been here to long and for God Sakes get rid of Tripp Tracy... Every time he Opens his mouth to see how good we are the other team scores... We need to MOVE FORWARD!

    Muller has zero options on goalies. Maybe the kid from the Checkers, but odds are he does not last a full period and I don't think they can get him unless Ellis goes on IR. Semin should not have played last night, don't waste him on this season.

    I keep reading the articles, but all I'm getting out of it is blah blah blah....the Hurricanes suck....blah blah blah. And all I've got to look forward to is baseball and nascar? This is turning out to be a long, boring year.

  • OGE Apr 10, 1:20 p.m.

    JR needs to go...and Muller needs to sit guys who "make mistakes"

    Apparently it is ok to LOSE. No one has been held accountable for this sorriness on ice. Jim Rutherford needs to go. Had this been a REAL Hockey town, he would have been removed and replaced long ago. Kamanous needs to look to do something to make someone accountable. Oh boo hoo. We have over half the team injured. We have not have any player who can play this game without getting hurt. How is it that the other 29 teams have enough player to play and actually hit someone on the ice. We have figure skaters carrying sticks, hoping not to break a fingernail. We have contracts on most of the sorriest players in the league. When the conference changes next year and we have to actually compete with REAL TEAMS, again, we will be the bottom feeders.

    No one in the press has called out Rutherford for not making the playoffs in many years and no one has questioned the losses. JR actually got on TV and said that it was a sorry product on ice, but hey, we are going up on your tickets and parking. Good luck next year. Fans can understand a loss here and now, however this has gone on way too far without some change, seeing that Karmanos is in Detroit and doesn't care, just getting up dates from Jim telling him all is OK in Carolina, I expect the hammer to fall on Muller, who can only play with the sorriness that JR has given him, so look out for Coach Moe's return. That is the only answer that JR knows when his prospects fail him.
