Hora is no stranger to the AHL, as he has appeared in 14 games for three different teams since the 2016-17 season when he made his debut for the Cleveland Monsters. This season, Hora missed the opening weekend for the Swamp Rabbits because of a stay with the Checkers and has subsequently returned to Greenville and then back to Charlotte. Hora has appeared in two games with the Checker this season with the most recent coming on November 11 against the Utica Comets.
Pecararo signed a PTO the same day as his teammate Max Zimmer who has combined with Pecararo for 22 points for the Swamp Rabbits this season.
