RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes switched backup goalies Monday, recalling John Grahame from Albany of the American Hockey League and assigning Michael Leighton to the team's top minor league affiliate.

The 32-year-old Grahame played in 13 games with the Hurricanes before being sent down nearly three weeks ago, posting a 4-6-1 record with a 3.83 goals-against average.

The 26-year-old Leighton was 1-1-0 with a 2.66 GAA in three games with Carolina after being recalled on Jan. 3. Sending Leighton to the minors gives him a chance to get some work. He played little behind No. 1 goaltender Cam Ward.
