RALEIGH, NC – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the National Hockey League’s Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled forward Aaron Palushaj (pul-LOO-shigh) from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League (AHL). The Hurricanes have also placed forward Riley Nash on injured reserve, retroactive to Dec. 31.
