Bowman gets the call

The Carolina Hurricanes yesterday recalled rookie forward Drayson Bowman from the Albany River Rats.

Canes' forward Tuomo Ruutu is scheduled to undergo shoulder surgery and will be out for the remainder of the season.

Bowman returns to Carolina for the second time, having appeared in his first NHL contest on January 16 against the Atlanta Thrashers. 

Bowman has tallied 32 points (17 G, 15 A) in 56 games this season with Albany. 

The Hurricanes play tonight at home against the Washington Capitals.
