RALEIGH, N.C. (July 23, 2004) – Jim Rutherford, President / General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with left wing Erik Cole on a one-year contract. As per club policy, no other terms were announced.

“Erik is instrumental to the success of our team,” said Rutherford. “We look forward to him taking the next step to being a top-level player.”

Cole, 25, completed his third NHL season in 2003-04, posting career highs in goals (18), points (42) and penalty minutes (93) in 2003-04. He was second on the team in goals (18), penalty minutes (93) and shooting percentage (10.5%). He was third in points (42) and fifth in assists (24). A native of Oswego, New York, Cole has totaled 48 goals and 61 assists (109 points) in 214 career games with the Hurricanes.

Drafted out of Clarkson University of the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) in the third round, 71st overall, of the 1998 Entry Draft, Cole (6’ 2”, 200 lbs.) played an integral role in Carolina’s run to the 2002 Stanley Cup Finals, leading all NHL rookies in goals (6) and points (9) in the postseason. He led all rookies and ranked fifth in the NHL in hits during the regular season in 2001-02, and was fourth among rookies in points (40), fifth in goals (16), and tied for second in assists (24). Cole was selected to represent the Eastern Conference in the 2003 NHL YoungStars Game at All-Star Weekend, but he was unable to participate due to a broken fibula.

Along with agreeing to terms with Cole, Rutherford also announced the team’s signing of center Jim Henkel to a one-year contract. In 2003-04, Henkel (6’ 2”, 190 lbs.) played in 35 games with Carolina’s AHL affiliate, the Lowell Lock Monsters, notching 11 goals and adding 13 assists (24 points) in that span. Before joining Lowell, Henkel, 25, spent time with Grand Rapids and Worcester of the AHL, totaling 13 goals and 14 assists (27 points) along with 10 penalty minutes in a combined 53 AHL games during 2003-04. The Hazlet, N.J., native was originally selected by the Los Angeles Kings in the eighth round, 217th overall, in the 1998 Entry Draft, and turned professional following four seasons at Rensselear Polytechnic Institute (ECAC).
