RALEIGH, N.C. – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the defending Eastern Conference champion Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has recalled goaltender Patrick DesRochers from Lowell of the American Hockey League. The team reassigned goaltender Arturs Irbe to Lowell, the Hurricanes’ top minor-league affiliate.

The Hurricanes acquired DesRochers from Phoenix on Dec. 31 in exchange for goaltender Jean-Marc Pelletier. DesRochers (6’4’’, 205 lbs.) has played in nine career NHL games for Phoenix and has a career record of 1-5-1 with a goals-against average of 3.73. He played four games with the Coyotes this season and recorded a 0-3-0 record with a goals-against average of 3.77. The Penetanguishene, Ont., native has played 14 games with Lowell since the trade, compiling a record of 3-10-1 with a goals-against average of 2.69. He is a combined 5-14-2 with a goals-against average of 2.67 and a save percentage of .917 with Springfield and Lowell of the AHL this season. DesRochers, 23, has a career record of 58-73-15 in the AHL with a goals-against average of 3.08. Phoenix originally chose DesRochers in the first round, 14th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.

Irbe (5’8’’, 190 lbs.) is 7-17-2 with a goals-against average of 3.06 and a save percentage of .884 in 27 games with Carolina this season. The franchise’s all-time leader in games played, wins and shutouts, Irbe is 125-113-43 with a goals-against average of 2.47 and 20 shutouts in 292 career games with Carolina. In 551 career games in the NHL with San Jose, Dallas, Vancouver and the Hurricanes, Irbe is 213-227-78 with a goals-against average of 2.83. He ranks second in NHL history among European-born goaltenders in wins behind Dominik Hasek (288).

The Hurricanes host the Washington Capitals at RBC Center on Friday, Feb. 14 (7 p.m., Fox Sports Net). Tickets for Friday’s game and all Hurricanes games are available via the team’s official website, CarolinaHurricanes.com, the Dodge Box Office at RBC Center or by calling 919-834-4000.
