Hurricanes Recall Dwyer, Tlusty 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 forwards Patrick Dwyer and Jiri Tlusty (YIH-ree T’LOO-stee) from the Albany River Rats of the American Hockey League (AHL). Rutherford also announced that the club will place forwards Erik Cole (upper body – expected to miss 2-3 weeks) and Chad LaRose (lower body – expected to miss 3-4 weeks) on injured reserve. Dwyer and Tlusty will be on the ice for the Hurricanes’ morning skate today at Verizon Center, and are eligible to play tonight against Washington.

This marks the second NHL recall this season for Dwyer. The Spokane, WA, native played in six games and averaged 10:53 of ice time per game during his first recall this season from Nov. 19-30. Dwyer, 26, has played in 22 AHL games with the River Rats this season, and ranks first among Albany skaters with 11 goals, and tied for second on the team with 18 points. Dwyer (5’11”, 175 lbs.) originally signed with Carolina as a free agent in July 2006, and inked a new two-year contract with the club on July 1, 2009.

This marks Tlusty’s first recall to the Hurricanes after Carolina acquired him from Toronto on Dec. 3, in exchange for the rights to center Philippe Paradis. The Slany, Czech Republic, native is in his third full professional season in North America, and has played in 74 career NHL regular-season games with the Maple Leafs, scoring 10 goals and earning 10 assists (20 points). In 106 career AHL regular-season games with the Toronto Marlies and Albany, Tlusty (6’0”, 209 lbs.) has scored 43 goals and earned 60 assists (103 points), including eight goals and seven assists (15 points) in 20 games this season. The Maple Leafs drafted Tlusty in the first round, 13th overall, of the 2006 NHL Entry Draft.

The Carolina Hurricanes continue their four-game road trip on Friday at the Verizon Center against the Washington Capitals (7 p.m., FOX Sports Carolinas, Hurricanes Radio Network). After a game at Ottawa on Saturday, the Hurricanes will return to Raleigh and will host the Dallas Stars at the RBC Center on Wednesday, Dec. 16. Tickets for all Hurricanes games in December and January are available at the Time Warner Cable Box Office at the RBC Center, via Ticketmaster.
