Carolina Hurricanes Call Up Replacement For Injured Teuvo Teravainen

The Carolina Hurricanes have recalled Mackenzie MacEachern from the minor leagues to bolster their roster in light of Teuvo Teravainen's injury and impending surgery.

Don Waddell, the team's President and General Manager, announced the decision to bring up the forward from the American Hockey League's (AHL) Chicago Wolves.

MacEachern, who stands at 6'2" and weighs 188 pounds, has played in 115 regular-season games with the St. Louis Blues since the 2018-19 season, contributing 19 points (11 goals, 8 assists).

He has also played in five NHL playoff games with the Blues during their 2020 run, recording 14 hits in just five games.

In addition, MacEachern has been productive in AHL playoffs, tallying 16 points (8 goals, 8 assists) in 28 games. During his last AHL season with the Chicago Wolves, he scored 30 points (11 goals, 19 assists) in 37 games, showcasing his scoring ability.

The 29-year-old's been especially hot lately, racking up 17 points in his last 16 games.

He's also a former teammate of Hurricanes defenseman Jaccob Slavin with the Chicago Steel in 2012-13.

Although MacEachern is not expected to be a big scorer for the Hurricanes, his physical play style and playoff experience make him a valuable asset for the team in their quest for a deep playoff run.
