The Atlanta Thrashers announced on Monday that they have recalled right wing Darren Haydar, the American Hockey League’s leading scorer, from the Chicago Wolves.
The 27-year-old forward currently holds the longest scoring streak in AHL history, registering at least one point in each of Chicago’s first 36 games of the 2006-07 season. Haydar’s streak will be considered intact until he returns to the Wolves.
The Toronto native, who is by far the AHL’s leader with 53 assists and 75 points this year, has appeared in two career NHL contests, both with Nashville in 2002-03. He won the Dudley "Red" Garrett Award as the AHL’s outstanding rookie that season, and led the Milwaukee Admirals to two Calder Cup Finals appearances, including a league championship in 2004.
Overall, Haydar has totaled 132 goals, 219 assists and 351 points in 329 career AHL tilts.
Atlanta visits Ottawa on Monday afternoon before heading to Minnesota on Tuesday night.
