Boychuk, Tlusty returned

The Carolina Hurricanes today reassigned forwards Zach Boychuk and Jiri Tlusty to the Albany River Rats. 

Both players were recalled for today's afternoon contest against the New York Rangers. Each had several memorable moments and displayed few mistakes, helping the Canes to a 2-1 overtime victory. 

Zach Boychuk demonstrated his skill-sets well, creating opportunities on the forecheck and hustling back to chip in defensively during his 10:15 of ice-time.

Tlusty was on the ice for 7:19 and picked up an assist after Tom Kostopoulos batted in a blocked shot Tlusty had thrown on the net.
