RALEIGH, N.C. (Sept. 30, 2003) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that right wing Jeff Heerema was picked up on waivers by the New York Rangers.

Heerema, 23, made his National Hockey League debut in 2002-03 and scored three goals in 10 games with Carolina before suffering a season-ending wrist injury. Prior to his Jan. 16 recall from Lowell of the American Hockey League, Heerema (6’ 1”, 195 lbs.) led the Lock Monsters with 15 goals and 17 assists (32 points) in 36 AHL games. Since turning professional in 2000-01, Heerema has scored 65 goals, earned 70 assists (135 points) and accumulated 135 penalty minutes in 185 AHL and IHL games. The Thunder Bay, Ont., native was drafted by Carolina in the first round, 11th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft.

Carolina’s training camp continues Wednesday with a split-squad practice beginning at 10 a.m. at the RecZone. Group 1 will take the ice at 10 a.m. and Group 2 will skate beginning at 11:30 a.m. Following practices on Thursday at the RecZone and Friday at the RBC Center, the Hurricanes will begin a home-and-home, back-to-back set with Washington at MCI Center on Friday. The RecZone is located at 912 Hodges St. in Raleigh.

The Hurricanes open their seventh season in North Carolina on Oct. 9 at Florida, before returning to the RBC Center for their home opener, Saturday, Oct. 11 against defending Stanley Cup champion New Jersey. Ticket packages for the 2003-04 season are available by calling 1-888-NHL-TIX1. Individual game tickets for October and November games are available at the Dodge Box Office at the RBC Center, all TicketMaster locations or by calling TicketMaster at 919-834-4000.
