After a five-game stint with the AHL's Charlotte Checkers, forward Andrea Nodl was recalled to the Carolina Hurricanes Wednesday. Nodl had four points with the Checkers.

Due to the NHL CBA's new rules that eliminated re-entry waivers, Nodl could not be claimed before being recalled. The Hurricanes claimed Nodl off waivers from Philadelphia last November, and the 25-year-old Austrian had three goals and four assists in 48 games with Carolina in 2011-12.
