The Hurricanes have sent Patrick Brown to Charlotte (AHL).
Brown, 22, made his NHL debut with Carolina on Opening Night, Oct. 10, and has averaged 9:37 of ice time while playing in all four of the Hurricanes’ games this season. In 2013-14, he scored 15 goals and earned 15 assists (30 points) in 40 games during his senior season at Boston College.
After Jeff Skinner was diagnosed with a concussion on Monday, the Hurricanes were in need of a winger because it is unlikely that Skinner will be ready for the Hurricanes' season opener on Friday. Brown skated on the third line with Jay McClement and Brad Malone this morning. The 22-year-old forward signed with Carolina this offseason after four years at Boston College.
