Hurricanes assign Faulk to AHL

The Carolina Hurricanes have reassigned defenseman Justin Faulk to Charlotte of the American Hockey League.

Faulk, 19, made his NHL debut October 7 and has played in three games for the Hurricanes. He has tallied 10 penalty minutes and averaged nearly 19 minutes of ice time per contest.

Faulk, who helped Minnesota-Duluth to the NCAA hockey championship in April, was selected 37th overall in the 2010 draft.
