With Liles, Faulk out, Canes recall Jordan
Posted March 10
The Carolina Hurricanes recalled defenseman Michal Jordan from the Charlotte Checkers Monday on an emergency basis.
Head coach Kirk Muller said that defensemen John-Michael Liles and Justin Faulk will both be out again Tuesday against the New York Rangers, rendering Jordan's services necessary.
Liles missed the last game and Faulk has missed the last two, each with upper-body injuries.
Jordan, 23, has totaled three goals and 12 assists in 53 AHL games for Charlotte this season. Selected by the Hurricanes in the fourth round in 2008, Jordan made his NHL debut for Carolina last season and has appeared in five career games for the Hurricanes.
The Hurricanes host the New York Rangers at PNC Arena on Tuesday (7 p.m., 99.9 The Fan ESPN Radio).
