RALEIGH, N.C. (July 16, 2003) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the team has acquired defenseman Bob Boughner from the Calgary Flames in exchange for a fourth-round pick in the 2004 NHL Entry Draft and future considerations.

“Bob is a tough, character veteran who will provide added leadership to our defense,” said Rutherford.

Boughner (6’ 0’’, 203 lbs.) tallied a career-high 17 points (3g, 14a) and had 126 penalty minutes in 69 games for the Flames last season. The Windsor, Ont., native has totaled 60 points (14g, 46a) and 1,240 penalty minutes in 535 career NHL games with Buffalo, Nashville, Pittsburgh and Calgary. Boughner, 32, led Calgary in plus/minus last season, registering a plus-5, while serving as one of Calgary’s captains.

Originally drafted by the Detroit Red Wings in the second round (32nd overall) of the 1989 NHL Entry Draft, Boughner signed with Calgary as a free agent following the 2000-01 season. He made his NHL debut with Buffalo in 1995-96, after being traded to the Sabres by the Florida Panthers. While in the Florida system, Boughner was a teammate of current Hurricanes netminder Kevin Weekes with the Carolina Monarchs of the American Hockey League in 1995-96.

The fourth-round pick in 2004 that Carolina is trading to Calgary is the selection the Hurricanes acquired from the Columbus Blue Jackets during the 2003 NHL Entry Draft. The Hurricanes traded two fifth-round picks in 2003 for that pick. Carolina maintains its other two fourth-round selection in 2004 – its own pick and the fourth-round selection that it acquired from Phoenix as part of the trade for Danny Markov.

The Flames would also receive a conditional fifth-round pick in 2005 if the Hurricanes sign Boughner following the 2003-04 season or if Carolina trades Boughner to another team, and he signs with that club.

The Hurricanes announced their schedule and mini-season ticket plans for the 2003-04 season today. For more information on purchasing a 10- or 24-game mini-season ticket package, please call the Carolina Hurricanes at (919) 467-7825 or (888) NHL-TIX-1.
