The Canes on Monday recalled goaltender John Muse from the Charlotte Checkers (AHL) on an emergency basis.
Goaltender Dan Ellis cut his left leg during Thursday's game against the New Jersey Devils. Ellis has been placed on injured reserve by the Canes.
In another personnel move Monday, the Canes activated defenseman Joe Corvo from injured reserve while placing defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti on injured reserve. Sanguinetti has an upper-body injury.
It's the first NHL recall for Muse, 24, who is in his second full professional season. Muse has a 6-6-0 record and a 3.48 goals-against average in 13 games with Charlotte this season.
Muse was recalled Jan. 12 to Charlotte from the Florida Everblades of the ECHL. He was 9-8-4 with a 3.66 goals-against average in 21 games with the Everblades prior to joining the Checkers.
Muse won two NCAA championships (2008, 2010) during his four-year collegiate career at Boston College.
