HURRICANES RECALL BRAD FAST AND DAMIAN SURMA

Team Plays Final 2003-04 Game at Florida, Today at 3 p.m.

RALEIGH, N.C. (April 4, 2004) – Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has recalled defenseman Brad Fast from Lowell of the American Hockey League and winger Damian Surma from Florida of the ECHL. Both players will be available for the Hurricanes lineup as the team plays its final game of 2003-04, today at Florida’s Office Depot Center (3 p.m., Fox Sports Net, Hurricanes Radio Network).

For Fast, this marks his first NHL recall since turning professional following his four years at Michigan State University. Fast (6’ 0”, 185 lbs.) signed with Carolina on March 24, 2003, following his senior season with the Spartans, and made his professional debut with Lowell last season playing in the Lock Monster’s final seven games. In 75 games with Lowell this year, the 24-year-old, Fort St. John, Sask., native has notched 10 goals and earned 25 assists (35 points) while accumulating 35 penalty minutes. He is the only player to have played in all 75 of Lowell’s games this season. The Hurricanes drafted Fast in the third round, 84th overall, in the 1999 NHL Entry Draft.

Surma, 23, made his NHL debut in 2002-03, scoring a goal in his only game, March 18, 2003, against Ottawa. The Lincoln Park, Mich., native has split 2003-04 between Lowell of the AHL and Carolina’s ECHL affiliate, Florida. In 48 games with Lowell, Surma (5’ 10”, 200 lbs.) scored three goals and earned five assists (8 points) while totaling 21 penalty minutes. In 17 ECHL games with Florida, he has scored six goals and earned eight assists (14 points) while accumulating 20 penalty minutes. The Hurricanes signed Surma to a three-year contract following his fourth season with Plymouth of the Ontario Hockey League after drafting him in the sixth round, 174th overall, in 1999.

The Hurricanes complete their season today against the Florida Panthers at Office Depot Center in Sunrise, Fla. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Net with face-off set for 3 p.m.
