RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has recalled defenseman Wade Brookbank from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League (AHL). Hurricanes defenseman Bret Hedican suffered a sprained knee during Friday night’s game against the Boston Bruins and is expected to be out 10-14 days.
