PHN’s Best Shots of the Game: Checkers work to overcome callups to ‘Canes


CHARLOTTE, NC – The Checkers have had major issues with consistency this season. Injuries with their parent club, Carolina Hurricanes, have forced the Canes to dip into the Checkers roster frequently and for long periods of time.

While this might be the objective of the affiliate, it can be devastating on the AHL side. Charlotte has struggled to string wins together since their season-opening success.

That has not kept the team from competing.

The Texas Stars were in Charlotte for a game and overcame a two-goal deficit to flip the Checkers, 5-3.
