In time for Game 3 of the Charlotte Checkers AHL opening round playoff series, the Carolina Hurricanes announced Sunday that they reassigned forwards Tim Wallace, Nicolas Blanchard and Jared Staal.

Blanchard, 25, made his NHL debut for the Hurricanes at Washington on April 11 and played in each of Carolina’s final nine games. He scored four goals, earned five assists and accumulated a team-high 124 penalty minutes in 61 regular-season games with Charlotte this season, serving as an alternate captain.

Wallace scored one goal and recorded one assist in 28 games with the Hurricanes this season.

Staal made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes on April 25 against the New York Rangers, and played in the team’s final two regular-season games. Prior to his recall, Staal appeared in 52 games with Charlotte, posting four goals, three assists.

Charlotte will be home for games three, four and five (if necessary) in their playoff series against the Oklahoma City Barons. The Checkers and Barons split the first two games of the series.

Seven Canes keep playing
While the regular season has concluded for the Carolina Hurrianes, six players will keep on as they participate in the 2013 International Ice Hockey Federation World Championship in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden.

For the third consecutive year, Jeff Skinner will skate for Team Canada. He will be joined by Eric Staal, who is making his third appearance for Team Canada in the event but first since 2008, and Jordan Staal, who is making his second appearance in the tournament,

Added to the Canadian team late Sunday night was defenseman Jay Harrison. Harrison won a silver and a gold medal skating with the Team Canada juniors in 2001 and 2002. The Ontario native played in 47 of 48 games this season for the Hurricanes recording 10 points.

As was announced last week, Justin Faulk and Jamie McBain will represent Team USA.

Jiri Tlusty will make his first ever appearance for the Czech Republic in the IIHF World Championshps. He is coming off a career year with 23 goals and 38 points. He has skated for the Czech Republic previously at the 2006 World Junior Championship and twice in the U-18 World Championships.

The tournament will take place in Helsinki, Finland, and Stockholm, Sweden May 3-19.

    ..Are you serious? This is the 4th year in a row for this team to be mega losers...Get a grip on reality dude.

    Two months ago, I would never have dreamed that we would be sitting home this post season. Such a good start but poor...no...horrid finish. For fans, that is unexeptable.

  • vance203 Apr 29, 2013

    Who is Jordan Stall??

  • mlusardi Apr 29, 2013

    McBain, REALLY!!! They can't be that desparate. IMO he played a major role in the Canes' downfall. Barely qualified for benchwarmer. Go get em Faulk!!!

    I'm glad foe the fact that these stories are well edited. Wish I could be glad foe the Hurricanes in the postseason, but once again we have an "NHL-Lite" hockey team, without a D, only 1 scoring line, and erratic goalie backups. Come on - invest some cash and get some top flight players - this area goes electric when the Canes are contending - get it done!

    I'm glad that some of the boys can keep playing, but I sure hope no one gets hurt. Guess playing in Charlotte or in the Worlds is better than sitting home on their ice.

  • common tater Apr 28, 2013

    I wonder if I can find tickets to Charlotte games...may be time for a road trip.
