Panthers send Martin Necas, Haydn Fleury to minors; promote Clark Bishop

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The Carolina Hurricanes have assigned forward Martin Necas and defenseman Haydn Fleury to their AHL affiliate in Charlotte.

In a corresponding move Wednesday, the Hurricanes recalled forward Clark Bishop from Charlotte.

The 19-year-old Necas, the team's first-round pick in 2017, was sent down a day after he scored his first NHL goal in a 4-2 loss at Tampa Bay. He was averaging only about 10 minutes of ice time.

The 22-year-old Fleury skated in only one game this season for the Hurricanes and their crowded defensive corps.

Bishop has one goal and two assists in four games with Charlotte.
