HURRICANES NAME TOM ROWE HEAD COACH AND GENERAL MANAGER OF TOP MINOR LEAGUE AFFILIATE

Ron Smith Announces Retirement from Coaching

Tom Rowe
RALEIGH, N.C. (May 6, 2004)
– Jim Rutherford, President and General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, announced today that the Hurricanes have named Tom Rowe as head coach and general manager of the team’s top minor-league affiliate Lowell Lock Monsters of the American Hockey League. The announcement comes as Ron Smith, the team’s head coach for the past three seasons, announced his retirement from coaching, and the Hurricanes announced a five-year affiliation agreement with Lowell.

“Tom has done an excellent job working with our players at the AHL level,” said Rutherford. “With Ron Smith retiring from the coaching ranks, Tom is the natural selection to lead our young players.”

Rowe, 47, has served as Smith’s assistant coach and Lowell’s director of hockey affiliations for the past three seasons. Prior to joining the Lock Monsters, Rowe served as assistant general manager with the Hartford Whalers from 1990-1992 and worked as a U.S. scout.

A native of Lynn, Mass., Rowe played nine NHL seasons with Hartford, Washington, Detroit and Edmonton, totaling 85 goals, 100 assists (185 points) and 615 penalty minutes in 357 career games. He became the first American player to score 30 goals in a season when he notched 31 with Washington in 1978-79.
