RALEIGH, N.C. (July 30, 2004) – Jim Rutherford, President / General Manager of the Carolina Hurricanes, today announced that the team has agreed to terms with defenseman Allan Rourke on a one-year contract. As per club policy, no other terms were announced.

"Allan is a maturing defenseman who showed last year that he can play at this level," said Rutherford. "He brings youth and depth to our organization."

Rourke, 24, saw his first NHL action in 2003-04. In 25 NHL games, Rourke scored one goal, added two assists (3 points) and totaled 22 penalty minutes. He made his NHL debut on Oct. 28, 2003, against San Jose before joining the Hurricanes for good on Feb. 12, and playing in 24 of the team's final 27 contests. Rourke (6' 2", 215 lbs.) also played in 45 games last season with Carolina's top minor-league affiliate, Lowell of the American Hockey League, scoring five goals and adding nine assists (14 points) with 45 penalty minutes.

The Hurricanes acquired Rourke from the Toronto Maple Leafs in exchange for Harold Druken and Jeff Daw on May 29, 2003. Toronto drafted the Mississauga, Ont., native in the sixth round, 154th overall, in the 1998 NHL Entry Draft. Following four seasons with Kitchner of the Ontario Hockey League, Rourke turned professional prior to the 2001-02 season and played three years with St. John's, the Maple Leafs' AHL affiliate. In 1999-00, his final year of junior hockey, Rourke finished the season with 74 points (31g, 43a), the second-best points total for an OHL defenseman that year, helping earn him a spot on the OHL's second All-Star Team.
