GREENVILLE, S.C. — Goaltender Jeremy Helvig has been called up by the Charlotte Checkers, after a multi-tier goaltending carousel in the Carolina Hurricanes organization.

This season was the first for the Ontario native in Greenville.Across 70 appearances at the ECHL level, the 22-year-old backstop has a record of 40-20-7, a 2.87 GAA and a .910 save percentage. Among ECHL goaltenders heading into Sunday's action, Helvig ranked fourth in saves (973), and tied for the eighth-most wins (13).The decorated Kingston Frontenacs alum had the OHL's best save percentage in 2016, and the most shutouts in 2017.
