Canes Assign Tlusty to AHL for Conditioning Stint
Forward to see action with Charlotte Checkers
Tlusty, 22, underwent surgery in late April after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) and a torn medial collateral ligament (MCL) during the 2010 AHL playoffs. The Slany, Czech Republic, native played in one of Carolina’s five 2010 North American preseason games during training camp, as well as the team’s 2010 Compuware NHL Premiere Challenge game against SKA St. Petersburg in Russia. Tlusty (6’0”, 209 lbs.) can spend as long as two weeks with the Checkers on his conditioning stint before rejoining the Hurricanes.
