Hurricanes Recall Tim Conboy and Brandon Nolan

Glen Wesley placed on injured reserve

RALEIGH, NC— Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled defenseman Tim Conboy and forward Brandon Nolan from Albany of the American Hockey League (AHL). Defenseman Glen Wesley has been placed on injured reserve, retroactive to Jan. 5, due to illness. Conboy and Nolan are expected to be available to play for Carolina tonight against the Colorado Avalanche at the RBC Center. 

This marks the fourth recall of the season for Nolan, 24. Nolan played for Albany last night in Portland, tallying one goal and two assists in the River Rats’ 6-5 loss, after being reassigned to Albany earlier in the day. The St. Catharine’s, Ont., native made his NHL debut with Carolina at Tampa Bay on Dec. 22, and has played in five games with the Hurricanes this season, earning one assist and averaging 6:37 of ice time. Nolan (6’1”, 192 lbs.) ranks second among River Rats skaters with 14 goals and 30 points while playing in 33 AHL games this season.

This marks Conboy’s first recall to Carolina. The Farmington, MN, native currently leads the River Rats in penalty minutes (147). Conboy (6’2’’, 210 lbs.) has totaled one goal and one assist (2 points) and a plus-5 plus/minus rating in 40 AHL games this season. Originally drafted by the San Jose Sharks in the seventh round (217th overall) of the 2002 NHL Entry Draft, Conboy has tallied 14 goals and 33 assists (47 points) and 568 penalty minutes in 254 career AHL games. He signed with the Hurricanes as a free agent on July 21, 2006, and has yet to make his NHL debut.
