Canes assign Dahlbeck to Checkers

The Carolina Hurricanes on Wednesday assigned defenseman Klas Dahlbeck to the Charlotte Checkers of the AHL on a conditioning stint.

Dahlbeck, claimed on waivers by the Canes in preseason, has played nine games for Carolina and has one goal and two assists. The Swede has not been in the lineup since Nov. 12 and has been a healthy extra.

The Canes recently assigned defenseman Ryan Murphy to the Checkers on a conditioning stint. He was recalled by the Canes this week after playing seven AHL games and joined the team in California.

Dahlbeck was expected to play for the Checkers on Wednesday in their road game against Stockton.
