Hurricanes Recall Brett Carson from Albany

RALEIGH, NC—Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled defenseman Brett Carson from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League. Carson will join the team for its game tonight at Mellon Arena against the Pittsburgh Penguins.

This marks the first NHL recall this season for Carson. The Regina, Sask., native made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes in 2008-09, when he averaged 15:43 of ice time while playing in five games from Dec. 7-18. Carson (6’4”, 210 lbs.) leads Albany defensemen this season with eight assists and 11 points, and has a plus-4 plus/minus rating, despite playing in just 14 of the team’s 27 games. Carson has totaled 91 points (13g, 78a) in 223 career AHL regular-season games with the River Rats since turning professional in 2006-07. Carolina drafted Carson in the fourth round, 109th overall, in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.
