HURRICANES RECALL TOMAS MALEC FROM LOWELL

Aaron Ward, Kevyn Adams Placed on Injured Reserve

RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 2, 2004) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that defenseman Tomas Malec (TOH-mahz MAL-ihtz) has been recalled from Lowell of the American Hockey League. The Hurricanes also placed defenseman Aaron Ward and center Kevyn Adams on injured reserve. Ward underwent left wrist surgery on Jan. 21 to repair ligament disruption, and Adams suffered a sprained left medial collateral ligament (MCL) in the Hurricanes’ Jan. 29 game against Washington.

This marks Malec’s second recall to Carolina this season. The 21-year-old defenseman was recalled on Nov. 25, but did not play in the Nov. 26 game at Nassau Coliseum against the New York Islanders. Malec has recorded three goals and six assists (nine points) and accumulated 67 penalty minutes in 42 games with the Lock Monsters this season. The Skalica, Slovakia, native made his NHL debut with the Hurricanes on Dec. 15, 2002, and played in 41 games with Carolina during the 2002-03 season, tallying two assists.

Malec was acquired along with Hedican and Kevyn Adams in exchange for Sandis Ozolinsh and Byron Ritchie on Jan. 16, 2002. In 72 career games with Lowell, Malec has recorded three goals and 10 assists (13 points) while picking up 117 penalty minutes. A third-round selection of the Panthers in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft, he notched 109 points (27g, 82a) in 115 career games with Rimouski of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey Association (QMJHL) before turning professional last season.

The Hurricanes continue their three-game Western Conference road swing on Tuesday at Pepsi Center against the Colorado Avalanche. Carolina will play its last game before the NHL All-Star break on Wednesday at Anaheim, and will resume play on Feb. 12 at the RBC Center against Washington.
