The Viking, Alb., native is in his second season as Charlotte’s captain, and ranks fourth among Checkers skaters in scoring with 33 points (13g, 20a) in 52 games. Sutter (6’0”, 200 lbs.) is in his sixth professional season and has scored one goal and earned four assists (5 points) in 37 career NHL games with Calgary and Carolina.

Welsh, 23, was recalled on Thursday and earned his first NHL point with an assist in the Hurricanes’ game against Montreal. The Bayfield, Ont., native is in his first full professional season and has totaled 11 goals and 10 assists (21 points) in 51 games with Charlotte in the AHL.
