The Canes have reassigned goaltender Mike Murphy to the Charlotte Checkers (AHL).
Murphy was recalled Sunday and served as the backup to Justin Peters on Monday night against the Washington Capitals.
This completes the second NHL recall for Murphy, 23. He is 15-11-1 with a 2.71 goals-against average and a .910 save percentage in 29 games for the Checkers this season.
Goaltender Cam Ward was not available Monday because of a lower-body injury, but Canes coach Kirk Muller said he believed Ward would be ready for Thursday's game against Anaheim.
