Hurricanes to Reassign Nash to Charlotte
RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team will reassign forward Riley Nash to the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL).

Nash, 22, was recalled from Charlotte on Friday on an emergency basis for forward Tim Brent, and played in his first NHL game that night against Phoenix. He recorded his first NHL point with an assist on Andreas Nodl’s first-period goal against Ottawa on Friday, and averaged 10:46 of ice time in his two NHL games.

Prior to his recall, Nash scored two goals and earned seven assists (9 points) while playing in each of the Checkers’ 31 games this season. The Consort, Alb., native is in his second professional season following three years with the Cornell Big Red of the Eastern Collegiate Athletic Conference (ECAC), and has earned 41 points (16g, 25a) in 110 career AHL games with Charlotte. Nash (6’1”, 191 lbs.) averaged a point per game at Cornell, with 37 goals and 65 assists (102 points) in 102 games. He is a former first-round (21st overall in 2007) of the Edmonton Oilers, and was acquired by Carolina on June 26, 2010, in exchange for a 2010 second-round pick.
