The Hurricanes have recalled Valentin Zykov from Charlotte (AHL).
Zykov, 21, was a second round pick of the Kings (No. 37 overall) in 2013 and it looks like he could make his NHL debut on Thursday. Zykov has recorded 15 goals and 15 assists (30 points) in 55 games with the Checkers this season. He is expected to play on the Hurricanes’ top line with Jordan Staal and Sebastien Aho.
