Saturday, 7 p.m. at Time Warner Cable Arena

Charlotte is gearing up to play a weekend home set with Milwaukee. … Charlotte is coming off a 4-1 loss Wednesday at Norfolk, a game in which it got back the franchise’s all-time leading scorer, Chris Terry, for a conditioning stint. Terry, who did not score, is expected to skate with the Checkers through Dec. 6. … Charlotte ranks 29th in the American Hockey League in scoring (2.18 goals per game), so Terry – who posted a career-best 69 points with the Checkers last season – should help. … The Checkers will wear Charlotte Hornets-themed jerseys Saturday. The jerseys will feature the Hornets colors and primary logo on the crest, with a modified Checkers logo on the shoulder. … The Admirals come in fresh off Wednesday’s 4-1 win against Chicago, a game in which Austin Watson (eight goals this season) netted his 50th goal with Milwaukee.
