HURRICANES REASSIGN ZIGOMANIS, MALEC TO LOWELL

Zigomanis to Join Top Canadian AHLers in All-Star Game on Monday

RALEIGH, N.C. (Feb. 5, 2004) - Jim Rutherford, President / General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has reassigned center Mike Zigomanis and defenseman Tomas Malec to Lowell of the American Hockey League. Zigomanis will play for the Canadian All-Star team against the PlanetUSA team in the AHL All-Star Game on Monday in Grand Rapids, Mich.

Zigomanis, 23, leads the Lock Monsters in points (39) and assists (29) while playing in 45 games this season. He played for the Hurricanes at Colorado and Anaheim after a Feb. 1 recall to replace Marty Murray in Carolina's lineup. Murray missed Carolina's games at Colorado and Anaheim to be with his wife Andrea who is expecting the couple's first child. Zigomanis was named the AHL's Sher-Wood Player of the Week for the period ending Jan. 25. In 19 games with the Hurricanes last season, Zigomanis recorded two goals and an assist in his first NHL recall. The Hurricanes drafted Zigomanis in the second round, 46th overall, in the 2001 NHL Entry Draft.

Malec, 21, also returns to Lowell after playing his first two games with the Hurricanes this season at Colorado and Anaheim following his Feb. 2 recall. Malec has recorded three goals and six assists (9 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.

The Hurricanes are off until Monday, Feb. 9, following NHL All-Star weekend in St. Paul, Minn. Carolina will practice at the RecZone on Monday at 2 p.m. and will play its next game on Feb. 12 when the Washington Capitals visit the RBC Center.
