HURRICANES RECALL TOMAS KURKA FROM LOWELL

Winger Will Be Available for Carolina’s Game Tonight

RALEIGH, N.C. – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has recalled left wing Tomas Kurka from Lowell of the American Hockey League. Kurka will be available for the Hurricanes’ game tonight against Los Angeles at the RBC Center (7 p.m., Fox SportsNet).

Kurka (5’ 11”, 190 lbs.) was selected by Carolina in the second round, 32nd overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft, and played his first six NHL games following his Feb. 24 recall. Kurka scored his first NHL goal in his first NHL game, Feb. 26 at Phoenix. He averaged 15:04 time on ice during his six-game stint between Feb. 26 and March 7 prior to being reassigned to Lowell on March 9.

In 57 games with Lowell this season, Kurka, 21, has 14 goals and 11 assists (25 points) and ranks sixth on the team in scoring. A native of Most, Czech Republic, Kurka turned professional last season and had 13 goals and 15 assists (28 points) in 71 regular-season games with Lowell. He played two seasons with Plymouth of the Ontario Hockey League prior to turning professional and totaled 108 points (51 goals, 57 assists) in 111 regular-season games.

Tickets for tonight’s game against Los Angeles 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.
