Hurricanes place D Gleason on IR

The Carolina Hurricanes have placed defenseman Tim Gleason on injured reserve, retroactive to Feb. 12.

Gleason missed Carolina's 3-1 victory over Toronto on Thursday with a lower- body injury. The ninth-year veteran has recorded two assists in 12 games this season.

Also on Monday, the Hurricanes recalled forward Riley Nash from the Charlotte Checkers of the American Hockey League. Nash, the 21st overall pick in the 2007 NHL Draft, appeared in five games with Carolina last season and registered one assist.
