Wesley activated by Canes; Aucoin, Nolan, Conboy sent to Albany

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes activated
defenseman Glen Wesley from injured reserve Sunday and sent three
players to their American Hockey League affiliate in Albany.

Wesley was activated one day after he was placed on the injured
list, retroactive to Jan. 5, because of illness.

Carolina sent forwards Keith Aucoin and Brandon Nolan and
defenseman Tim Conboy to Albany, and they were expected to play
Sunday at Syracuse.

Nolan, the 24-year-old son of New York Islanders coach Ted
Nolan, has been called up four times this season by Carolina and
completed his second one-game NHL stint in a week. He was recalled
Thursday, sent back to Albany on Friday and rejoined Carolina on
Saturday.

Conboy, signed last summer by Carolina as a free agent, made his
debut Saturday night in a 5-4 loss to Colorado. He finished with an
assist and got into a fight with Avalanche enforcer Scott Parker on
his first NHL shift.

Aucoin had a goal and an assist in the loss to Colorado.
