KEN LEHNER RESIGNS AS HURRICANES VICE PRESIDENT OF MARKETING COMMUNICATIONS

Lehner to join Tampa Bay as Sr. Vice President of Marketing and Branding

RALEIGH, N.C. (Dec. 9, 2003) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that Ken Lehner, Vice President of Marketing Communications, has issued his resignation from the team. Lehner will join the Tampa Bay Lightning and their Arena Football League affiliate Tampa Bay Storm as Senior Vice President for Marketing and Branding.

“Ken has done an outstanding job during the past five years and been a valuable asset to the Hurricanes’ growth and success,” said Rutherford. “We wish him well in his new position with Tampa Bay.”

Lehner joined the Hurricanes in September 1998 and has been responsible for the team’s marketing campaigns, fan development, CanesVision, the formation of Gale Force Media and the increase in Hurricanes television broadcasts from 40 to 69 games per season. Lehner helped create the Hurricanes Radio Network with affiliate stations throughout North Carolina, promoted and developed usage for the term “Caniac” and was an instrumental part in the Hurricanes and the Triangle securing the 2004 NHL Entry Draft.

“It has been an honor and a privilege to work for Mr. (Peter) Karmanos, who is one of the most passionate owners in the NHL” said Lehner, “Under the leadership of Jim Rutherford and Jason Karmanos, plus the growing number of Caniacs in the Carolinas, the organization has poised itself for long-term success. I look forward to watching them build upon the achievements that we have enjoyed over the past five years.”

Before joining the Hurricanes, Lehner spent six seasons working in Major League Baseball. He spent one season with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays as the Director of Travel and five seasons with the Florida Marlins as the Director of Spring Training Operations. Lehner started his career with Rich Baseball Operations in Buffalo, N.Y., holding the position of Baseball Operations Manager from 1983-92. In 1992, Lehner accepted position of Director of Spring Training Operations with the Marlins. He accepted additional duties in 1994 when he was named the General Manager of the Brevard County Manatees. The Manatees led the Florida State League in attendance for four years, and Lehner was named the Florida State League Executive of the Year in 1997.
