Gauthier was called up on Monday and will play in his third NHL game of the season. The 22-year-old power-forward has scored 10 goals with two assists (12 points) in 22 AHL games this season and will skate on the fourth line with Jordan Martinook and Brock McGinn in Edmonton.
The Hurricanes reassigned Julien Gauthier to Charlotte (AHL).

The Hurricanes have recalled Julien Gauthier from Charlotte (AHL).
Gauthier was one of the last cuts in training camp and started the AHL season with two goals in two games. The 6-foot-4, 225 lbs. winger was the No.21 overall pick in 2016 but could have a tough time carving out a meaningful role on a deep Hurricanes squad.
