Ex-Union star Welsh in Hurricanes' lineup tonight
Former Union hockey standout center Jeremy Welsh will be in the Carolina Hurricanes' lineup tonight as they face the Tampa Bay Lightning.
According to Chip Alexander, who covers the Hurricanes for the Raleigh News & Observer, Welsh will be on the fourth line with Kevin Westgarth and Tim Brent.
Welsh spent the NHL lockout with the Hurricanes' AHL affiliate, the Charlotte Checkers. He has six goals and seven assists in 39 games.
It will be Welsh's second career NHL game. He played in the Hurricanes final game of last season, two days after Union was eliminated in the NCAA Frozen Four.
