Brett Lysak Reassigned to AHL Affiliate

RALEIGH, N.C. (March 24, 2004) - Jim Rutherford, President / General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled left wing Tomas Kurka from Lowell of the American Hockey League. The team also reassigned center Brett Lysak (LI-zak) to Lowell. Lysak was recalled on March 18 and played in his first two NHL games during his five-day stint with the Hurricanes.

This marks Kurka's second recall to Carolina this season. The 22-year-old made his NHL season debut at New Jersey on Feb. 14, skated 12:29 and finished that game with a plus-1 rating. He has totaled 28 points (6g, 22a) in 46 games with Lowell this season. After registering no points in Lowell's first eight games, Kurka was diagnosed with mononucleosis and missed 20 games before returning to the lineup and scoring six goals, 22 assists (28 points) and accumulating 12 penalty minutes in 38 games. In parts of three AHL seasons, he has scored 36 goals, earned 49 assists (85 points) and totaled 48 penalty minutes in 178 games. The Most, Czech Republic, native played in 14 games with Carolina during 2002-03, posting three goals and two assists (5 points) in his first NHL season. The Hurricanes selected Kurka in the second round, 32nd overall, in the 2000 NHL Entry Draft.

For Lysak, 23, it was his first NHL recall since the Hurricanes drafted him in the second round, 49th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft. In 62 games with the Lock Monsters this season, Lysak (6' 0", 190 lbs.) ranks tied for second on the team with 17 goals, fifth with 31 points and has totaled 94 penalty minutes. Since turning professional prior to the 2001-02 season, the Edmonton, Alb., native has played in 164 games with Lowell, the Hurricanes' top minor-league affiliate, and registered 29 goals and 31 assists (60 points) while accumulating 179 penalty minutes. In 2001-02, Lysak played in 16 games with the Florida Everblades of the ECHL, scoring two goals and earning seven assists (9 points).

The Hurricanes conclude their two-game home stand on Thursday at the RBC Center against the Florida Panthers.
