Boychuk back

The Carolina Hurricanes today reassigned rookie forward Zach Boychuk to the River Rats, giving Albany 20 healthy skaters as the team prepares for Wednesday's away game in Binghamton.

Boychuk was recalled to Carolina on Friday and earned two assists in two games with the Canes over the weekend. 

Boychuk is the Rats second highest leading scorer with 12 goals and 15 assists in 41 games. He ranks among the AHL's top rookies and his five game-winners ties for fifth best in the league.
